Friends of Derby Local Studies attended a fim premier with a difference! Tucked away in boxes in attics and sheds, cupboards and garages are the filmed records of families and communities, offering a unique window into our local history. MACE’s Full Circle film search project has uncovered hundreds of amateur films made by people from the Midlands.
This was a unique opportunity to view some of this unseen film archive footage of the local area and learn about the project and hear some of the stories behind the footage.
Some people responded to our callout for more film and brought along their treasures to be preserved and a copy made onto DVD for them.
If you have any film or moving image that you would like to preserve for future generations please contact senior curator Kay Ogilvie email@example.com to find our more about the Full Circle project visit http://www.macearchive.org
