Archival Stock Footage Library

CFA collections contain primarily historical footage that is unique and can be found nowhere else. Much is representative of the Midwest, but we hold footage from the remainder of North America and around the world. When you use our licensing services, you also contribute to the preservation of our collective culture and history.


Before any CFA research or set up is started, please fill out this form that includes an abstract of the film/project that is being created and a description of the type of footage you are looking for.

Before you get in touch please review our Archival Stock Footage Policy.
