Stills sales

One of the world’s biggest archive collections of film and television stills.

The BFI preserves in excess of 1.4 million still images. Featuring captured on and off screen moments, portraits of cinema’s most iconic names, as well as images of posters, set designs, studios, cinemas, special events, technology and pre-cinema, the collection is one of the most extensive in the world.

The BFI is temporarily unable to provide an on demand stills sales service while we complete an ambitious project to digitally preserve and make the entire collection more widely available online.

Digitised still images can be viewed for research on the premises, accessing the BFI’s Collections Information Database at the BFI Reuben Library.
