BFI Player

The British Film Institute (BFI) has just released the BFI player. An online service that allows users to watch films that have influenced generations. Most of their films will be offered for free (approximately 60%) and the rest of the films will be able to be rented (approximately 40%).

The BFI Player will launch with seven different collections:

  • London Film Festival Presents; exclusive red carpet action, talent interviews and special behind the scenes access to the UK’s most important film festival
  • Backed by the BFI; the best of British cinema – a showcase of some of the finest films, many funded by the BFI Film Fund
  • Edwardian Britain;  for the first time ever all 28 hours of the extraordinary films of pioneering filmmakers Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon, c.1900 – 1912
  • GOTHIC: The Dark Heart of Film; The BFI’s blockbuster project featuring four compelling themes Monstrous, The Dark Arts, Haunted and Love is a Devil
  • Cult Cinema; a passport to an exciting and surprising world of cult British cinema from the BFI’s Flipside DVD label
  • Inside Film; films about filmmaking for filmmakers and all those who love cinema
  • Sight and Sound Selects (from their Greatest Film poll); a growing selection of the best films of all time

If you are looking for something to do during the holidays or those rainy days and what to develop your film knowledge while watching some of the most entertaining and groundbreaking films of their day - then go and explore the BFI Player.
