The films of André Noufflard taken between 1925 and 1940 were deposed by Henriette Guy Loë and Geneviève Noufflard in 1998 at PIHN in Rouen.
The 732 small reels of 30m by 9,5mm (spool Pathé Baby) were classified, given titles and numbers by their author and placed in small leather cases.
After being transferred onto a secure numeric support they were viewed, indexed, dated and analysed (indexed by key words, place names, persons, events represented ….)
With the approval of the legal successor, they are now available for cultural events (expositions, documentaries, film festivals and educational projects).
Since 2005, editions of excerpts filmed in Alsace (particularly concerning the Prix de Français en Alsace) can be consulted in the archives of Bas Rhin, created in 1986 (known as the MAHN) is a department of Pôle Image, financially supported by the Haute Normandie region and the Regional Direction of Cultural Affairs.
The MAHN has established a numeric inventory of all the documents, films and audio visual patrimony as well as recent documents having Upper Normandy as its theme or emplacement. There are at present 6700 films, professional or amateur, documentaries or fiction, long or short footage already listed.
This is not only a place to conserve, restore or stock the material but also a place where one can project the images (rendez-vous necessary) and eventually have copies, if the legal successors agree. One can also consult documents relevant to the films.
The MAHN equally participates in various cultural events and organizes public projections. It is a founding member of the FCAFF (Federation of Cinémathèques (Film libraries) and archives of French films) since 1995. Member of “Unpublished amateur film archives of Europe (formerly the European Association of unpublished films) since 1992. Member of the PIAF (Professionals of images and archives of French speaking countries) since 1997. The MAHN is constantly enriching its collections and would appreciate receiving information concerning other existing documents in your possession.
