Mediatheque at BFI Southbank

The new BFI Southbank Mediatheque has reopened with thousands more titles and a fresh new look.

The Mediatheque is evolving, with constantly growing content, a completely new digital platform and new facilities.

Thanks to continuing digitisation work at the BFI National Archive, the content available on the new Mediatheque service is constantly growing in both depth and breadth and every week new material is added.

Whether you’re a researcher, film enthusiast or simply nostalgic for the telly of your childhood, the BFI Mediatheque is a unique place to come, watch and discover wonderfully curated treasures of British film and TV history.

The Mediatheque service has been redeveloped to support and showcase the range of new content as well as to provide users with an optimal experience for exploration and discovery. The service is available to access in a new revamped space at BFI Southbank with touchscreen monitors.
