The North West Film Archive (NWFA, established 1977) in Manchester is the recognised public home for the moving image heritage of the North West of England.
The Archive cares for over 35,000 items ranging in date from the pioneer days of film in the mid-1890s to video productions of the present day. The work of both the professional and the amateur is collected. The NWFA is a part of the Learning and Research Information Services (library) at Manchester Metropolitan University and is accommodated in Minshull House, Chorlton Street.
