View non-digitised IWM Film
IWM has an ongoing digitisation programme with newly digitised films added to this website on a regular basis. Subject to preservation priorities, films not available for viewing online may be viewed in IWM’s Film Archive by prior appointment – normally 3 to 7 working days’ notice is required.
Please note that viewing facilities are limited and in constant demand. There is no charge for viewing appointments for commercial users.
Research non-catalogued IWM Film
A limited amount of the IWM film collection is not yet searchable online. Information on these films is held on card indexes with associated documentation, which can be researched at IWM by prior appointment with film curators available to advise about film material that may be of interest to your project. There is no charge for card index and documentation research.
