Ordering From Us
All footage in The Travel Film Archive is represented for licensing either by Getty Images or the TFA Network of agents. The "Library" field for each clip indicates which library holds that clip. To place an order you can use our cart system and, depending on which clips you select, your request will be sent to the appropriate library and they will contact you to provide licensing information and complete the transaction. If you are ordering sections from an entire film or from a long clip, please make sure you record the in and out time codes for each section in the Notes box before adding it to the cart. If you currently deal with either of these libraries you may also contact them directly and refer to the relevant Travel Film Archive clip number. Each Getty Images clip also contains a link which will take you directly to that clip on Getty's web site.
