About Us

Footage File was conceived from 25 years experience in stock footage licensing, archival research, rights clearances, video production and film curation. We license footage for advertising, documentary, feature film, television and other media projects. Our eclectic mix of archival and contemporary genres include aerial cinematography, aviation, advertising, early cinema, documentaries, educational, feature films, industrials, newsreels, slapstick, travel and more. Our site was built with the professional researcher and producer in mind offering a clip-searchable database and free research tailor-made for your project needs. If you don’t find what you are looking for on our website please send us a request and we’ll be happy to search through our own extensive offline film archive and with our footage partners around the world.
