Repository description (extant): The Harvard Film Archive offers a public cinematheque program, presenting films Friday through Monday nights year round. All screenings are held in the Archive's 200-seat theater located in the historic Carpenter Center for the Arts.
The HFA frequently invites filmmakers to discuss their work and engage with the vibrant community of students, professors, artists and cinephiles who regularly attend Archive screenings . . . .
The HFA's collection of 35 and 16mm material for almost 14,000 titles, as well as its many posters and documents, are accessible to faculty and students at Harvard, as well as to outside researchers, through our academic research services.
Established with the assistance of the Luce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities in 1979, the Harvard Film Archive has grown into an incomparably rich resource for scholars and filmmakers. A division of Harvard University's Fine Arts Library, the HFA is an affiliate of the International Federation of Film Archives.
