In keeping with our goal of making accessible northern New England's moving image heritage, Northeast Historic Film presents Archival Moments from our collection before the weekly feature films at the Alamo Theatre. If possible we like to select a collection which relates to the feature in some way. This week our feature, Unknown starring Liam Neeson, is set in Berlin, Germany.

Like our collections, the projects cover a wide range of topics like land use, town profiles, Boston news, politics, and maritime heritage. These are not finished products, but rather a sneak peek. If you are not a member it's not too late to get your copy. Visit the Membership section of this site to learn how to join.


Maine Community Foundation grant received

Submitted by Jessica

NHF is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Maine Community Foundation to create three new compilations from our collections.  This is a great opportunity to show the rich heritage of the region that is in the vaults.  These compilations will include sustainable agriculture, a glimpse of three Maine communities over time, and a look at our maritime heritage on film.
