Welcome to the North West Film Archive, the professionally recognised public home for the moving image heritage of the North West of England.
This will be our final year of preparation for relocating to Manchester Central Library where we will re-open in spring 2014 as part of the new Archives+ partnership. Some services will be reduced during the year, with a short period of closure between December and March 2014. We look forward to seeing you there!
