For 25 years Age Exchange has made films about reminiscence work. It has produced a series of documentary films and documentary dramas based on many reminiscence themes.

Age Exchange has been commissioned by many other organisations to make documentaries on their behalf, as well as film interviews and project activity for inclusion in exhibitions, performance, and archive. If you would like to commission Age Exchange to make a film about your work, or to film project activity or interviews, please contact
David Savill
