The British Film Institute, the government and film culture, 1933-2000

Geoffrey Nowell-Smith and Christophe Dupin

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The British Film Institute is central to film culture in Britain - through its archive, its venues on London's Southbank, its publications, its activities as film distributor and video publisher, and in film education nationwide
  • The history of this key British institution has never been told before
  • The book is wide ranging in scope - not just about the BFI but seventy-five years of British cultural life (for instance the film societies, the film archive movement, the much-loved MOMI etc)
  • Interesting for both historians and film students, it is scholarly and at the same time very readable
