The BFI National Archive holds a magnificent collection of film and television, from the birth of cinema to today. Concentrating on British titles, we carefully select material for our collections, preserving, restoring and interpreting it to ensure our film heritage is widely accessible in cinemas and in the home. We also collect posters, images, publicity material, original scripts, letters and other artefacts.
With Twitter celebrating its first ever #MuseumWeek from 24-30 March, bringing together on social media hundreds of museums and archives across Europe, we go behind the scenes at our J. Paul Getty Jr Conservation Centre in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. It’s here that our collections are housed, preserved and restored to keep the films alive for new audiences.
