Archive projects

The curatorial and archive teams work to showcase the vast collections of the BFI National Archive and to bring them to a wider audience in cinemas, on television, on DVD and online.

In 2012 and 2013 the BFI National Archive was central to the projects The Genius of Hitchcock and Ealing: Light and Dark, and is a partner in the The Artist in the Archive initiative.
