What is the BFI Mediatheque?
QUAD was the first venue outside London to host a BFI Mediatheque - an exciting and unique collection of film and television from the British Film Institute's National Archive - available for all to view FREE of charge.
The BFI Mediatheque at QUAD is a digital jukebox featuring many of the best, the rarest and the most extraordinary titles from the BFI National Archive. Simply log on at one of the viewing stations and choose from over 2,000 complete films and TV programmes and watch them FREE at the click of a mouse.
You will need to request a log on number from the QUAD Box office first, and if you need any help the Box office staff will be happy to assist.
From locally made documentaries and home movies to classics of British cinema and television, the collection will be sure to fascinate, entertain and inspire you.
CUSTOMER NOTICE: Due to irreconcilable hardware failure we have discontinued use of the BFI Mediatheque until further notice.
We invite customers to take a look at some of the content available for free online via the BFI player.
