Come and browse the Digital Film Archive at Flowerfield

Over 65 hours of historic footage available to the public.

FLOWERFIELD Arts Centre is offering an exciting backward look from now on, as it welcomes the Digital Film Archive to Portstewart.

The resource is managed by Northern Ireland Screen and is a wonderful collection of historic film, available for anyone with an interest in the moving image. The Archive - which will be housed in the Long Gallery at Flowerfield, easily accessible for visitors - is a resource for teachers, students, historians and anyone with an interest in Northern Ireland's rich history.

The moving images are stored on a computer which allows easy access to the material through the use of a browser, a keyword search or the use of selected highlights. The Archive is accessible completely free of charge to members of the public, and will be used for occasional special presentations at Flowerfield on selected themes.

The DFA contains over 65 hours of moving images about Northern Ireland, dating from 1897 to 2000. There are items covering drama, animation, documentaries, news, newsreels, amateur and actuality film. It presents an opportunity for study, for recreation and for entertainment - for the dedicated student of local history and the casual browser alike.

The Archive is available for viewing in the Long Gallery at Flowerfield Arts Centre during the centre's opening hours - ask a member of reception for guidance.


Opening hours: 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am to 1pm, Saturday. Flowerfield is also often open on
weekday evenings when creative classes are running in the centre please call us for details.
