The BFI Player was unveiled on 9 October to coincide with the 57th BFI London Film Festival, and film enthusiasts can now watch on their iPads.

Last week the BFI restoration of The Epic of Everest, one of the most remarkable films in the BFI National Archive, was made available on the BFI Player on the same day as its premiere at the London Film Festival and UK release. From today, audiences can enjoy The Selfish Giant, Clio Barnard’s critically-acclaimed follow-up to The Arbor, at the same time as it opens in cinemas nationwide.
