British Film Institute Open Archives Online

The British Film Institute (bfi) have announced a Website, screenonline, that provides access to a selection of their extensive archive of film and television footage. Each item is categorised and cross referenced, presenting an impressive extensive depth of information; including synopsis, cast listing, biographies, photographs; such as production stills and scripts.

The bfi have secured licensing for many video and audio clips from the productions, which will be accessible to every UK school, further education college and public library.

The bfi will continue to expand the material as it becomes available and as rights for clips are cleared.
