We license and sell material from the BFI National Archive to commercial clients such as TV production companies and filmmakers.
Over the last 60 years we’ve assembled the world’s leading collection of moving image materials, some of it unseen for decades, and we’re adding to it all the time. The collection chronicles life in the UK and around the world since the invention of film in the late nineteenth century.
We can arrange research viewings for our clients. You can also view hundreds of BFI owned items through our Mediatheques around the UK, and there’s an A-Z list of Mediatheque films that you can browse online.
