ITN Source & Indiegogo Documentary Archive Program







Are you a documentary filmmaker looking for great footage to tell your story? ITN Source can help you with that. Today, we’re launching a Documentary Archive Program which will give Indiegogo filmmakers direct access to historical news and entertainment footage from ITN Source, one of the world’s largest international footage licensors.

Through this new program, filmmakers in the draft stage of an Indiegogo campaign can connect directly with the ITN Source team in order to receive free research assistance and archive material for use in their pitch film. The Documentary Archive Program is open to documentary filmmakers across the world.

How does ITN Source Services work: 

ITN Source has over 2.8 million video clips, programs and film titles available online. They represent the global archives of ITN, Reuters, ITV Studios, NBC, Fox News, Fox Movietone and numerous specialist collections. The archive spans 118 years (from 1896 to present), covering everything from news to drama, celebrity, comedy, music, wildlife and natural history. Over 20 hours of digitized content is added every day, making rare and previously unseen material available to producers and researchers around the world.
