About Us

Stock Footage

Footage File was conceived from 20 years experience in stock footage licensing, archival research, rights clearances, video production and film curation. We license footage for advertising, documentary, feature film, television and other media projects. Our eclectic mix of archival and contemporary genres include aerial cinematography, aviation, advertising, early cinema, documentaries, educationals, feature films, industrials, newsreels, slapstick, travel and more. Our site was built with the professional researcher and producer in mind offering a clip-searchable database and free research tailor-made for your project needs. If you don't find what you are looking for on our website please send us a request and we'll be happy to search through our own extensive offline film archive and with our footage partners around the world.

Research and Clearances

We’ll find footage, photos, music, talent, text or trademarks for your project anywhere in the world and clear all the rights you need to use them. And we'll negotiate fees and terms that work for you. You will benefit from our decades of experience tracking down rights holders and working out deals. We are associated with the Paris-based research company Rush Bar. Working with our European partner, we can offer more in-depth research and greater efficiency on an international scale. The result is faster and greater access to content worldwide.
