UK: "BFI Launches Searchable Archive of Ancient Film Clips"
The British Film Institute has launched a free catalogue of digitised film clips from its extensive library, at a website called Search Your Film Archives.
This massive repository of grainy black-and-white clips, candid home movies, archival footage from long-dead documentaries and snippets from ancient films can be flicked through by the general public.
Alongside the Search Your Film Archives, SHUK has created the Master Film Store. This monster dry fridge in Warwickshire preserves film prints and negatives at optimum conditions and safe from decay and fire.
