Unlocking Film Heritage

Unlocking Film Heritage is a central priority of the BFI Film Forever strategic plan.

This major BFI commitment will ensure the UK’s screen heritage is safeguarded for future generations and made available to discover and enjoy on BFI Player and in venues across the UK.

With the focus on appreciation of film heritage and increasing audience choice, the people of the UK, filmmakers, educationalists, researchers and other users will be exposed to the amazing qualities of their rich screen heritage, regardless of where they live or where that heritage is held.

This begins with Britain on Film as part of the wider preservation and digitisation programme to unlock 10,000 titles selected from the BFI National Archive, Regional and National Archives and rights holders from across the UK.
