Support the BFI

Help us change the conversation

BFI is a charity and we care for every aspect of film. We screen the best classic and contemporary film from around the world, inspire and support filmmakers of the future, and restore and maintain film and TV from the past in the world’s greatest accessible film archive.

The work we do takes support. And we couldn’t do it without you.
