ISD Film Library in 1954

The Information Services Department (ISD) Central Film Library was started during the colonial era to provide access to educational films for missionaries, educators and government touring cinema vans. Most of the early films in the collection were made in Britain but a few were actually made in what was then the Gold Coast. After independence the film collection continued to grow and continued to be used by cinema vans, schools and community organizations throughout the nation. For more on the ISD Central Film Library today see Cinema Collections in Ghana.
