Program 1

Northeast Historic Film preserves and makes accessible over ten million feet of film and thousands of hours of video. Our three-story Conservation Center holds our collections and offers storage for consortium partners and others. We received a $500,000 National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant to help raise funds to support an endowment and construction of the Conservation Center. We are currently seeking donations to meet the match. The archives hold more home movies than any other institution in North America, an essential tool for exploring regional, culture, and history from the ground ueducational, and cultural organizations all over North America. We distribute, at low cost to users, video for research and teaching. Many teachers in history, social studies, language arts, and special projects of all kinds use these videos for classroom projects. NHF serves experienced film scholars and historians - but the real strength of NHF is the ability to serve people encountering cultural history for the first time, people studying our built landscape and changing communities, curious about early film, independent filmmaking, and many other topics. NHF is located in one of the oldest surviving cinema buildings in northern New England, The Alamo, which opened in the first decades of motion pictures, when many cinemas were community centers, accommodating local events and live performances. We operate a year round community cinema, staffed by local high school students. The cinema is widely known for offering the best projection and sound in the region.
