Archives for Education is a scheme developed by Shane O’Sullivan at Kingston University. The scheme makes available 39 documentaries from the BFI National Archive and BBC Archive for creative reuse by student filmmakers on course-related projects in universities across the UK & Ireland.

The a one day symposium at BFI Southbank on 21 May 2020, hosted by BFI Education, will reflect on the first full academic year of the scheme with some of the student’s work being screened.
