Hi, my first post here, so I hope it's in the right place.
I've come across three film reels from the CBC (Canadian Broadcast Corporation), documenting Vancouver and area in 1958.

I'm not sure what to do with them, or what the demand for them is. Do I give them back to the CBC? Are there people who look for old Canadian film reels?

Any help or direction is appreciated, and sorry if this is posted in the wrong forum or community. Thank you,

Ronen

Ronen:
Northeast Historic Film is an archive in Bucksport, Maine, that serves as a repository for material similar to what you describe. They have an environmentally controlled facility known as The Cube to facilitate various levels of storage, and the organization occasionally screens archival material at their venue, the Alamo Theater.

Ronen,

Library and Archives Canada may take them. They have a massive film vault, film scanners, optical printers and a separate Nitrate film vault. I think thats your best bet. Keep the film in Canada. They house over 100,000 film titles.

Ronen,

You might want to try the Museum of Vancouver and see if they are interested in them.

The National Film Board of Canada would be another place to try. I don't know if the archive stuff other than their own productions, though.

The NFB is only concerned with their own material. They are also a very closed shop and charge rather large fees to access their films for screenings or to use as stock footage. Library and Archives is all about preservation and access.
