    Who is the most prolific British female director? Which subjects feature in British horror films? Which countries have co-produced British feature films? These are the kinds of question we can now easily find answers for. After a few years in the making the BFI has finally published an online compilation of UK feature films released to cinemas from the beginning of film history until now. As well as presenting a broad overview of the UK film industry, the BFI have mapped other information onto each of the film titles (e.g. people and companies involved) to enrich and provide unique insights into UK film history. This information should be of interest to film buffs, journalists, researchers, or anyone with an interest in UK film and/or history. It is searchable with shareable data visualisations on a dedicated BFI Filmography web platform or record by record on via the Collections Search.
    The Filmography is a dynamic resource, and the underlying data is constantly being reviewed and updated.
