The Shetland Film Archive (formally known as the Shetland Moving Image Archive) is a registered charity, SCO 42107. The Shetland Film Archive collects, preserves and digitises films of Shetland and of Shetlanders – both amateur and professional.
The archive was established by a voluntary committee, who worked hard over the years to source funding and make the archive a reality.
All film that is accepted into the archive is stored in specialist facilities in Glasgow by the national body, Scottish Screen Archives. This allows us to store these fragile and vulnerable films in optimum conditions and allows us to keep our costs down. The films are then made available on our website, or on DVD.
