    This is the catalogue for the Essex Record Office, which holds not only documents, maps and photographs but also sound recordings and videos. The collections cover oral history; selected items from BBC Essex radio; selections from local hospital TV and talking newspapers; videos of local interest, including many from the East Anglian Film Archive; dialect recordings; and recordings of music performed by local musicians, including a major collection of folk music and folk dance drawn from Essex sources. The site also offers well-produced user guidelines to four registers: family, house, vehicles and electoral rolls. Official registers are excellent avenues into researching many aspects of local history and culture but their records can sometimes be difficult to understand, so the tips on how to search and how to make sense of the results are very useful. The advanced search tool can be used to narrow results to one type of material only (e.g. audiovisual). To watch the moving image and sound holdings an account needs to be created, and registration is free.

    Launched in 2015 by Birkbeck Institute for Moving Image, the programming of The Essay Film Festival aims to provide a focus for the current global expansion of this type of film, which is understood as a hybrid form that brings together elements of documentary and experimental filmmaking into a highly personal and often politically engaged mode of expression. Some classic exponents of the essay film are Humphrey Jennings, Harun Farocki, Patrick Keiller and Agnes Varda. The Events section of the site contains information and resources about past and present editions of the festival, including video and audio recordings of events, photographs, articles and other documents, which are of special value for anyone who is interested in this engaging mode of filmmaking. The Audio Archives present Interviews, Q&As with prominent film theorists such as Thomas Elsaesser and Peter Wollen, and filmmakers including Pierre Creton, Jocelyn Saab, Joao Moreira Salles and Thom Andersen.
