Registered Charity No: 287780 (England & Wales).

The British Film Institute (BFI) is the UK’s lead organisation for film, television and the moving image. Our role is to ensure that film is central to our cultural life. We are a charity that:

  • Curates and presents the greatest international public programme of independent and World Cinema for audiences; in cinemas, at festivals and online 
  • Cares for the BFI National Archive – the most significant film and television archive in the world containing nearly a million titles 
  • Seeks out and supports the next generation of filmmakers through inspiring education programmes 
  • Works with Government and industry to make the UK the most creatively exciting and prosperous place to make film internationally

By leaving the BFI a legacy gift in your Will, you will be helping to preserve the UK’s film heritage and to protect its future.

If you notify us of your intentions we will welcome you to the BFI Legacy Circle. As a member of this special group we will be able to thank you personally at an annual event and send you updates on the BFI’s work.
