What is the BFI?

The BFI, or the British Film Institute, is the lead organisation for film, television and the moving image in England. It is a cultural charity that curates and presents the greatest international public programme of world cinema for audiences in cinemas, at festivals and online.  The BFI cares for the National Archive, the most significant film and television archive in the world. The organisation actively seeks out and supports the next generation of filmmakers and works with government and industry to make the UK the most creatively exciting and prosperous place to make movies.  The BFI also distributes National Lottery funds for film development, production and distribution. Founded in 1933, the BFI is a registered charity governed by Royal Charter.
