The British Film Institute have over the years released a number of historically important films, short films and documentaries, some of which may never have otherwise been released. This includes the Flipside releases which are releases of British films that have not been released previously. There have been a number of re-issues of certain titles, including dual format releases that contain both the DVD and Blu-ray.

These are all preceded by the catalogue code BFIDVD, e.g. BFIDVD501

There are a number of other titles that will also be combined to dual format releases during 2012
