On this page you’ll find information on how you can take part in sharing, supporting and enriching London’s historic moving image collections.
KinoVan and screenings
Inspired by travelling cinema vans of the 1920s, the KinoVan is a mobile cinema offering a unique insight into London’s past – and it can come to you! With a bespoke programme of classic home movies, silent-era newsreels and stunning amateur footage of lost London, all specially curated to delight your audience, the KinoVan provides a truly memorable experience at events such as open days, festivals or street parties. We can also offer indoor screenings should you have a venue.
From professional productions to amateur home movies, London’s Screen Archives considers all moving image precious and we want to work with you to preserve it. If you have a collection of films or even just a single tape or digital file that you think may be of interest, please complete this form and we will get back to you. Even if your donation does not fit the network’s collection policy, we will provide you with advice on what to do next.
LSA is always keen to hear from skilled volunteers to assist both with ongoing archival tasks and with current projects. If you have experience of, or are developing a career in, the film or heritage sectors please do get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. More general volunteering opportunities crop up from time to time on specific projects; we will advertise these via the London’s Screen Archives’ website and the email lists of our partner organisations.
