Description

A division of Harvard Library, the Harvard Film Archive is dedicated to the collection, preservation and exhibition of film. It maintains an extensive archive of over 40,000 motion picture prints, audio visual elements and ephemera from around the world and from almost every period in film history. Located in the historic Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts on the Harvard University campus, the HFA cinematheque is renowned for its diverse programming of films which—due to age, rarity, challenging content or format—are not screened regularly or often even available for viewing at all. Further enhancing the cinematic experience, the HFA regularly invites filmmakers to discuss their work after screenings. The 188-seat theater accommodates DCP, 35mm, 16mm, Super 8 and all variety of video formats.
