New catalogue of Performing Arts on Film & Television


The Performing Arts on Film & Television Catalogue 2011

A new catalogue is now available to download, detailing film and video materials held by the archives and collections of the British Film Institute (BFI), Arts Council England, LUX and Central St Martins British Artists Film & Video Study Collection.

The Performing Arts on Film & Television Catalogue was commissioned by MI:LL (Moving Image: Legacy and Learning), an Arts Council England initiative to support projects and develop strategies that promote engagement with the arts through the moving image.

Intended for use by programmers, curators, researchers, students, performers, practitioners, artists and filmmakers, this catalogue gives an account of the histories of theatre, acting, dance, music, performance art and oratory (from politics to poetry) on film and television, through referencing around 3,500 titles selected from the combined collections of the BFI, Arts Council England, Central St Martins British Artists Film & Video Study Collection and LUX.

The film and television collections of these archives include titles from the very beginnings of cinema (1895) through to recent works and shows the richness and particularity of the different collections, each of which preserves a distinct area of moving image culture and has its own relationship to performance, and which together add up to an extraordinary cultural resource.
