The Colonial Film: Moving Images of the British Empire project was a major Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project to investigate, examine, and make available the films representing the British Empire held in the National Film Archive, the Imperial War Museum, and the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum. The project was co-directed by Lee Grieveson and Colin MacCabe and produced a major website resource as well as two collections edited by Grieveson and MacCabe.
