The British Universities Film and Video Council (BUFVC) is a representative body for universities and colleges in the UK. It supports the advancement of education by promoting the production, study and use of moving image, sound and related media within post-compulsory education and research via a range of services and resources. The BUFVC is part-funded by HEFCE, via the JISC and receives additional income from subscriptions, research and events.
They have premises just off Oxford Street and Dr Howells has been involved in numerous projects with them, including the creation of a database and online delivery system for newsreel footage for academic researchers in collaboration with Reuters and ITN.
