The Media Archive for Central England, an independent limited company and registered charity, is the public sector regional film and video archive for the East and West Midlands. Based at the University of Lincoln we are part of a network of public moving image archives that collectively preserve the UK’s moving image heritage. We are also an integral part of the network of public archives and record offices across the Midlands.
Our aims are to collect, document, preserve, and subsequently provide access to the moving image heritage of the East and West Midlands. In addition we provide an information service to help people who are looking for film as well advice on how to care for moving image materials outside the archive.
