About the BFI

The BFI was founded in 1933. We are a charity governed by a Royal Charter. We combine cultural, creative and industrial roles, bringing together the BFI National Archive and BFI Reuben Library, film distribution, exhibition and education at BFI Southbank and BFI IMAX, publishing and festivals.

We award Lottery funding for film production, distribution, education, audience development and market intelligence and research.

BFI2022 is our five-year strategic plan to shape the BFI’s next chapter for film, television and the moving image.
