YFA Online is an interactive moving image resource that you can enjoy, learn from and contribute to.  You can watch hundreds of films reflecting Yorkshire life, landscape and culture from the 1890s to the present day, all selected from the Yorkshire Film Archive’s rich collection with the help of audiences across the region.

You can now access the resource via a dedicated YFA Online portal at the National Media Museum.  Available at a click of a mouse, visitors to the Museum will be able to access powerful historic and personal images that inspire, entertain, inform and leave deep impressions on us.

The new access point available at the National Media Museum allows visitors to the Museum to browse an ever-growing online collection of archive films not only from Bradford but from the whole of the Yorkshire region.

You can also search archive material of Bradford in the BFI Film & TV Database.
