Future Proofing the South Lanarkshire Film Collection
Funding was received from Museums Galleries Scotland to investigate our extensive cine film collections. This forms part of our wider project to inventory and digitise South Lanarkshire’s museum collections currently held in storage.
The amateur films from across South Lanarkshire were collected by various public bodies, groups and individuals. They document local events and anniversaries, and record the changing faces of our towns and communities. This project enabled us to develop an inventory of the collection. We also gained a more detailed knowledge of the individual films.
Even more exciting is the ongoing work to convert a broad sample of these films into a digital format. This will allow us to include them in events and exhibitions, and share with our visitors.
