BMT Film & Media Archive
Film, photography and audio archive of Leeds, particularly concerned with textile industry, jazz music and black culture. We have 1000s of hours of video and audio digitised by our partners Alive Studios for use in media, television, and for cultural representation. We are community documentaries for TV and cinema release. Audio-visual promotion of under-represented groups and community cultural activities.
We are based in Leeds United Kingdom, the cultural, financial and commercial heart of the West Yorkshire Urban Area, giving voice to local communities, whilst reflecting the city’s strong cultural diversity and global profile. Our rapidly expanding archive shines a light on this significant cultural heritage. We produce work for the media industry at the same time seeking advice from the very community we portray, engaging with our social purpose via our Quorum of Community Consultants
