Britain on Film

Saturday, 19th January 2019

As part of the legacy for the BFI’s Britain on Film project we have created a bespoke crowdsourcing platform based on films within the Britain on Film map on BFI Player. Linking directly from the BFI Player http://player.bfi.org.uk/britain-on-film or via http://contribute.bfi.org.uk, the crowdsourcing platform will encourage people to share their unique knowledge by 'pinning' locations to the online map.

In doing so, they will improve the accuracy and depth of the geo-tagging of films within the Britain on Film national collection, and will enhance our understanding of the films themselves, as well as charting the evolution of our towns and cities.
