What is the Shakespeare on Film touring collection?

In January 2016 the British Film Institute (BFI) launched a major project celebrating Shakespeare on film. The project included films dating from 1899 right up to the present day, all adapted from and inspired by Shakespeare’s work.

These films will screen in cinemas internationally and online.
