Sudan's rich and vast documentary heritage is held in collections around the country, capturing cultural practices and traditions, and documenting historical movements. The Sudan National Film Archive, for instance, is one of the largest of its kind in the continent. The collections from multiple institutions will be digitized, including the National Film Archive, the National Museum, the University of Khartoum in Sudan, and the National Archives in South Sudan. A digitization hub will be set up in Khartoum and personnel already involved in the project will be trained.
