About the BFI National Archive

We care for the BFI’s film and television collections in state-of-the art facilities, which include the UK’s Master Film Store at Gaydon, Warwickshire.

Established in 1935, the BFI National Archive holds one of the largest film and television collections in the world. Dating from the earliest days of film to the 21st century, it contains nearly a million titles. Using the latest preservation methods, we care for a variety of often obsolete formats so that future generations can enjoy their film heritage. We also respond to all research requests for archive materials.
