London’s Screen Archives (LSA) is a unique network of over 70 organisations with a collective vision – to preserve and share London’s history on film.

The network is managed by Film London and encompasses organisations that hold heritage film collections across London, including local and borough archives, museums, galleries, public sector bodies, community groups, and national charities. We work with our members to digitise their films and ensure the long-term sustainability of their moving image collections, as well as offering opportunities for public engagement through screenings and events, volunteering programmes, training and education.

All our members’ collections are brought together and made searchable through this website, and the London’s Screen Archives team are available for any queries on the collections, including licensing and research.

We are very grateful to our funders, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the BFI, and The National Archives, for supporting the network and making these incredible collections available to everyone, everywhere.
