ABSTRACT
The British Film Institute (BFI), founded in 1933, is one of the longest-standing government-sponsored arts organizations in Great Britain. Besides creating a national film archive, the BFI set up a national film theatre on London's south bank and inaugurated several film festivals. Made a registered charity governed by a Royal Charter in 1983, the BFI became the lead agency for film in the UK in 2011. The BFI library, having operated for years in an office space located in Soho miles away from the popular flagstore cinema complex, finally inaugurated its new premises adjacent to the movie theatres in spring 2012. It holds the biggest and most comprehensive collection relating to film and television anywhere in the world.
