The Northeast India AV Archive is an audiovisual public archive at the Department of Mass Media, St. Anthony’s College, Shillong, India.
The Archive endeavours to be more than just a storehouse of nice trinkets of novelty, it will hopefully facilitate an activation of memories that have long been forgotten or are in process of being forgotten and will be a significant repository of our legacy, and means of collecting knowledge and documenting history. Media archives in India have usually been institutes of academic or administrative nature, which intimidate common citizens. The Northeast India AV Archive strives to make the idea of archive popular and accessible. Existing both in online and offline world, NEIAVArchive promises to be both enlightening and enjoyable experience for its users.
The material present at the archive are documentary films, newsreels, interviews, amateur footage, sound recordings and photographs. This material relating to the eight states of northeast India exists in various analog and digital formats.
We invite individuals, organisations and institutions to access material of the archive (online or offline), contribute to the archive and also avail digitization facilities for audio-video material.
