From Vault to Screen: British Film Institute National Archive
February 18 – March 31
Established in 1935, the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive holds one of the largest film and television collections in the world. Dating from the earliest days of cinema to the live capture of current television content, the collection contains nearly a million titles. The archive cares for a variety of obsolete formats so that future generations may study the United Kingdom’s film heritage. These five titles represent recent and unending work in preservation and restoration. With special thanks to Hannah Prouse and the staff of the BFI.
