Stills sales

One of the world’s biggest archive collections of film and television stills.

The BFI preserves in excess of 1.4 million still images featuring captured on and off screen moments, portraits of cinema’s most iconic names, as well as images of studios, cinemas, special events, technology and pre-cinema. The collection is one of the most extensive in the world.

BFI Archive Sales can supply copies of images for use in most projects subject to copyright clearance.

We unfortunately cannot offer a physical reproduction service.
