“Colonial Film: Moving Images of The British Empire” is a major scholarly and archival project to investigate the history of moving images of the British Empire. This project has been financed by an Arts and Humanities Major Resource Enhancement grant and will run until late September 2010.
The project will produce a detailed online catalogue of the entire corpus of films representing British colonies either factually or fictionally held by the British Film Institute, the Imperial War Museum, and the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum.
