Newsreel Digitization Project

In partnership with Shebafilms Ltd., and the Friends of the Finnish Labour Temple, the Thunder Bay Museum has had four interns working on the completion of this project: Dr. Tom Peotto, Katie Green, Brandon Cordeiro, and Derek Okeese.

This involves digitizing the 16mm reels, which were originally donated to us by Fraser Dougall and span from approximately 1958-1978, as well as researching and cataloguing them to allow those interested to find footage of memorable events.

Stay tuned to our social media for updates on this exciting project, which is generously funded through the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation.
