The BFI National Archive, established in 1935, is one of the world's largest and most diverse film and television collections, held across two world-leading facilities for the preservation, conservation and restoration of film; the BFI Master Film store in Warwickshire - a state-of-the-art, sub-zero facility where nitrate and acetate film collections are preserved - and The J Paul Getty Jr Conservation Centre in Hertfordshire. Featuring more than 120,000 non-fiction film titles, 60,000 fiction film titles and 750,000 television programmes, the Archive?s collections document British life, history and creativity from 1895 onwards. Increasing access to our collections is a strategic priority for the BFI and these incredible holdings underpin 60% of our wider cultural programme, as well as extensive public engagement, research, and education work. The Archive's expert team of curators, archivists, librarians, technicians and conservators work on numerous research programmes related to the screen sector, often in concert with colleagues across the academic, cultural and industrial sectors.
