Following an extensive digitisation project commissioned by NATO, over 2000 titles of official footage are now available for licensing via IWM Film. This project is part of an exclusive global licensing distribution partnership between IWM and NATO, marking the 70th anniversary of the creation of NATO, the world’s strongest political-military alliance, on 4 April 2019.
Ineke Deserno, Head of Archives at NATO says: “It is very timely this film collection is available at the moment of NATO’s 70th Anniversary, with so much reflection now taking place on the long history since the beginning of that transatlantic bond. The materials digitized by IWM represent some of the key moments in time, with some very rare footage, for telling the story of the Alliance to the world. NATO is grateful for the invaluable expertise from IWM to help the Alliance preserve this important collection and make it available for a new generation of storytellers to share NATO’s history.”
