About Us

The BFI was founded in 1933. We are a charity governed by a Royal Charter and combine cultural, creative and industrial roles, including management of the BFI National Archive. 

Every purchase at the BFI Shop supports the work of the BFI.

Online we stock all of the BFI's extensive range of Blu-rays, DVDs, books and gifts, as well as BFI membership and subscriptions to our monthly film magazine Sight & Sound. 

The Shop is staffed by film experts and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service and enthusiasm for all types of cinema.

Visit us in person at the BFI Southbank - where as well as BFI products we also stock a huge range of world cinema and specialist Blu-rays, DVDs, books and film-related merchandise.
