Film Finances is still in the process of mapping out the extent of an extraordinary treasure-trove that gives an unprecedented insight into not only the post-war British film industry but also the growth of independent production around the world.

With a view to securing a future for the archive that will maximise its benefit for all who care about its contents, we want to make film historians, archivists, scholars and cinephiles aware of its importance. In future newsletters we will highlight some of its riches, and welcome any inquiries or suggestions for how to make the most of its potential. The next newsletter will focus on John Croydon, who was Film Finances' consultant from 1950 to the early 1980s. Over that period, he wrote reports on over a thousand film propositions. During his long career, Croydon had worked as a production manager, screenwriter, line producer and even studio boss. Sarah Street on Film Finances’s contribution to the British New Wave films of the early 1960s: "The range of documentation generated by Film Finances allows us to reconsider how particular films were produced, as well as how they have been referenced and evaluated.

As with all archival collections there are gaps, questions remain and the past can never be 'recovered', yet Film Finances enabled British cinema to change, to travel north in 1959 and then south with Julie Christie in 1963. "
