Footprints comprises rarely seen footage of Nigeria from the British Film Institutes's National Archive. The origins of the British Film Institute's collection have their roots in the colonial administration's use of the film to document and often, propangandise colonial rule. As Nigeria's regions gained self government, they also saw film as an integral part of promoting their newly independent status to the world. British Council has researched the BFI's collection of Nigerian Films, from both the colonial and the modern era and has digitised them. These will be presented to the public through the Footprints project. 

Clips in the Collection to be screened are Nigeria's New Constitution, Northern Provinces of Nigeria, Southern Provinces of Nigeria.
