Help London Screen Archives with their LocalEyes Community Cataloguing Project

The Film London London Screen Archives new community cataloguing tool, LocalEyes, has now launched. It gives you the chance to share your knowledge and memories about films held by the London’s Screen Archives network. Whether you recognise a person, place, know the date of a film, or have anything you’d like to share, you can join the discussion and help bring London's history on film to life. 

See here for more details; and you don't need to login or pay in any way, just click on the ‘Catalogue this Film’ button on a film page. Anything published helps to tell a bigger picture of London’s social history on film. Search for a film local to you, or by selecting one of the fifteen outer boroughs below who are part of the London: A Bigger Picture project, which is helping to preserve and enrich film collections across the capital.



Owen Van Spall

Greetings. I am a Film History MA graduate from Birkbeck University of London and a trained NCTJ qualified journalist. Apart from a long history of film and news writing for this site and various other publications, I am also a trained photographer with my own camera kit. I write mostly every day. Along the way I have picked up work experience at Sight & Sound, The Guardian, The Independent, The FT, The New Statesman, and more. I have written hard news stories, features, arranged and conducted interviews with celebrities, film directors and other major cultural figures, arranged photo shoots, and covered film festivals, conferences and events in the UK and abroad. If you wish to commission me or enquire about full-time opportunities please find my CV and contact details below. A physical portfolio of print only cuttings can also be provided.
