The Yorkshire Film Archive is a registered charity (no. 1093468) which finds, preserves and provides public access to moving image made in or about the Yorkshire region. YFA also manages the collections held by the North East Film Archive (NEFA), as part of its charitable remit.

In July 2012, the two archives merged and now come under the Yorkshire Film Archive banner and charity. However, we are working across two regions with immensely strong identities; hence both archives retain their regional titles. This is also reflected strongly in the collections we hold, and we continue to celebrate this in all our work.

Together, our growing collections currently contain over 50,000 titles - 17,000 held by YFA, and 33,000 held by NEFA - ranging from films made by the early film pioneers of the late 1890s, to recent footage of changing landscapes and life across both regions.
