The North West Film Archive is asking the public to submit videos of their experience of the Covid-19 pandemic to preserve for future generations.

The NWFA, part of the Manchester Metropolitan University, is a public archive for films about life in the North West of England.

The NWFA said: “We want to create as wide-ranging a picture as possible of what lockdown life was really like in the North West of England during the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, so we’re looking to collect your videos of these unprecedented times.”

“We’re living through a unique period in our lifetimes – social distancing, lockdown life, friends and loved ones far from reach – and the North West Film Archive wants to preserve your experiences of this time for future generations.

“So, whoever and wherever you are in the North West, if you have any video showing life at home or at work – the empty streets, the experiences of key workers, the Zoom parties, the weekly applause for the NHS on your street, etc, etc – we’d love to hear from you.”
