BFI Southbank's Mediatheque is the place to explore the BFI National Archive, for free.
Using the BFI Mediatheque is easy – turn up on the day or book a viewing session in advance. Check in at the desk inside the Mediatheque and then log on to a viewing station. Proof of age may be required, as only age-appropriate material is made available to younger users.
The Mediatheque is the place to make new discoveries and get reacquainted with old favourites. Simply log on at a viewing station and enjoy highlights from the BFI National Archive, the world's greatest and most diverse collection of film and television, free of charge. From home movies to feature films, documentaries to kids' TV, many titles have rarely been seen since their original release or broadcast – if at all.
