Festival Archive Treasures

Film preservation and restoration is a vital part of our work. This collection represents moments in time, salvaged for a second chance to awe, enrich and entertain a new audience. They reflect human endeavour, on and off screen.

As BFI Ambassador Tom Hiddleston said, "We can’t predict the future of film. But we can preserve its past."
