Special Collections and Stills, Posters, and Designs

Not limited to celluloid and videotape, the BFI looks after a range of unique and exciting assets relating directly to films and filmmakers. Here we explore some of the incredible paper collections safeguarded at the BFI National Archive. Curator Nathalie Morris takes us through items in the Special Collections, some of which include film marketing materials and personal ephemera, and Senior Curator Michael Caldwell points out some of the remarkable posters and designs that form part of the BFI's comprehensive Stills, Posters, and Designs assets.
