New to the Digital Film Archive is the Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund Collection.

The Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund (the ‘USBF’) provides finance for the production of film, television or other moving image projects relating to the Ulster-Scots heritage, culture and language in Northern Ireland. As of 31st March 2021, the USBF has supported 185 hours of television content as well as a range of digital content and radio projects.

The overarching aim of the Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund is to ensure that the heritage, culture and language of Ulster-Scots is expressed through moving image. As a support to the primary aim, the USBF is also open to supporting radio content produced for BBC Radio Ulster; other local commercial stations and/or community radio.

It is the Digitial Film Archive's aim to add to this collection throughout the year to showcase some of the fantastic work made with support from the fund.
