Yorkshire Film Archive Enterprises (YFAe)
is a unique social enterprise partnership.

It is a 100% owned subsidiary of the Yorkshire Film Archive (YFA), which is a Charity whose remit is to find, preserve and provide public access to films about the Yorkshire region. Since a merger in 2012, YFA also manages the film collections held by the North East Film Archive (NEFA).

Between these two archives there are in excess of 50,000 films – some dating back as far as the late 19th century. Together they make up an invaluable social history of the regions.

YFAe has been set up with two aims:
  • Firstly to find innovative ways of showing off the Archive’s films through the development of new products and thereby fulfilling the third element of the charitable remit – to show the films to the public.
  • And secondly to use some of those products to generate revenue to help support the important on-going work of these regional archives.
Since 2010, The Reputations Group (TRG) – a social entrepreneurial management consultancy – has been working closely with YFA on the development of a number of new products, some of which are now ready to take to market. TRG has a wealth of experience in marketing and commercial management.

In February 2013, the social enterprise YFAe was set up as partnership between YFA and TRG, which will manage the operation over the next three years. The first products Memory Bank and Calendar are now available.

This website is essentially a portal through which to learn more about the YFA, about TRG and about the great products that will be marketed by YFA Enterprises. Please follow the links on the photo carousel to find out more about us.
