Kinolibrary are simply one of the best archives in the world. Look at the end credits of most archive documentaries and you will likely see their name. Their collections are beautifully curated and managed by a team who are friendly, intuitive, passionate, and professional. They are always the first on my list to contact and They. Always. Deliver. And they work within your budget. And they let you accumulate. I guarantee you will love them!
Kino is one of my favorite archives to work with. They are fast, flexible, professional and reliable. Even with the time difference they have been there for me and the project when I needed them.
Every person I've worked with at Kino has been amazing. They've been a calming sea in a clearance hurricane.

"I’ve received astonishing archival footage for two major historical drama projects, both for pre-visualisation, offline and the online process. The dialogue with Kinolibrary is close, and both responses and deliveries are fast."
The projects mentioned are the series CLARK for Netflix directed by Jonas Åkerlund produced by Bright Moving Pictures Sweden AB and HILMA AF KLINT directed by Lasse Hallström produced by Brain Academy AB for Nent/viaplay.
Always a first port of call when sourcing archive footage. A unique beautiful collection that is affordable and managed by a fanstastic team who understand the demands of the broadcasting industry. Kinolibrary's personal approach while assisting with projects has always been a great experience. I could not recommend them enough! www.katialom.co.uk
