About: Imperial War Museum - Film Archive
IWM has managed a Film Archive from its very beginnings as an institution, and the film collection now covers all aspects of conflicts in which British, Commonwealth or former Empire countries have been involved since the start of the twentieth century. Our constantly growing collection now extends to over 24,000 hours of moving images, representing a wide and diverse range of material from public and service information films, documentaries and unedited combat film, through to official newsreels and amateur films.
Highlights of the collection include the original 1916 record of The Battle of the Somme (now granted UNESCO Memory of the World status), Second World War unedited material shot by British Army Film and Photographic Unit (AFPU), RAF Film Unit and Admiralty cameramen, as well as a significant collection of amateur film – much of it in colour – covering wide areas of the former British Empire, the Second World War, India and Partition, and beyond.
IWM has a team of experienced film curators who offer assistance to commercial researchers and has recently upgraded its website designed for the needs of commercial users IWM Film.
