Research is currently being conducted into a range of issues around this subject including the interaction between audiences, learning and technology, the scope of existing provision around learning based activity in film and media with children and young people, and the range of activity being delivered. The BFI continues to run programmes for learners of all ages at BFI Southbank. Table 16.8 provides details of some of the BFI’s main education activities. In 2012/13 there were 38,473 admissions to BFI Southbank education events, an increase from 37,000 admissions in 2011/12 and up 96% on 2004/05. There were 4,890 education admissions to BFI festivals – down from 5,000 on 2011/12, and 10% lower than in 2004/05. The number of visits to the BFI Reuben Library increased substantially from 11,905 in 2011/12 to 62,000 in 2012/13, due in large part to its relocation from Stephen Street to BFI Southbank. Information enquiries decreased by nearly 38%, from 3,971 in the previous year to 1,743. BFI Screenonline is a web-based encyclopaedia of British film and television featuring hundreds of hours of clips from the BFI National Archive, supplemented by contextual material, stills, posters and press books. Users in UK schools, colleges, universities and libraries can access the entire site for free; in 2012/13 there were 49,900 video streaming requests. 176 – BFI Statistical Yearbook 2014
