The organized use of moving image was introduced at the
London Jewish Cultural Centre by Stuart Libson in 1994. Work began to provide what has become the most extensive collection of Jewish related film in Europe. The Archive holds both feature film and documentary.
Used by film makers and researchers, the Archive is organised into sections which provide valuable material to complement the Centre's teaching programme. From Hollywood to Eastern Europe the collection reveals the rich wealth of Jewish life from the very early cinema to the present day. Off-air productions of both feature films and documentaries are fed into the Archive regularly.
In order to satisfy copywrite laws the Archive is licensed with the Education Recording Agency. Connections with other organisations include the British Schools and University Film and Video Council, The Imperial War Museum, The Steven Spielberg Archive and the United States Washington Congressional Library.
Visitors are welcome to view the material and consult with Stuart Libson by appointment.
