BFI PLAYER PLUS IS NOW ON DEMAND

-
BFI Player Plus For those of you who have been living in a potato farm located in deepest, darkest, Mars, please get up, brush yourself down, and try to remember the BFI. You do know who the BFI are, don't you? They're the leading organisation for film in the UK, with the ambition of creating a flourishing film environment in which innovation, opportunity, and creativity can thrive.





For example, they can...
  • Connect audiences to the widest choice of British and World cinema.
  • Preserve and restore the most significant film collections in the world for today and future generations. 
  • Champion emerging and world class film makers in the UK -- investing in creative, distinctive, and entertaining work.
  • Promote British film and talent to the world.
  • Grow the next generation of film makers and audiences. 

Over here in the UK the BFI acts as a Government arm’s-length body and distributor of Lottery funds for film-making projects. On top of that, they also serve a public role which covers the cultural, creative, and economic aspects of film in the UK. Delivering this role they: 
  • Stand in as the UK-wide organisation for film, a charity core funded by Government.
  • Provide Lottery and Government funds for film across the UK. 
  • Work with partners to advance the position of film in the UK.
  • Founded in 1933, the BFI is a registered charity governed by Royal Charter
