Scope and Content

The Harvard Film Archive Cinematheque Collection consists of film program calendars from the Harvard Film Archive from 1984 until 2007. (Complete calendar listings from 1999-present are accessible on the HFA's website.) The collection also includes programming calendars from fifty different archives, cinematheques, and museums collected by the HFA's programming office, representing film programming at American archives and festivals from the period of approximately 1970-2006 and also including a small selection from Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. A small collection of film journals, festival programs, and newsletters rounds out the collection.
The collected program calendars and periodicals, along with the run of HFA calendars available in print and online from 1984 to the present provide a breadth of information on not only the institutional history of the Harvard Film Archive, but of overall independent and archival screening and curation practices and themes at cultural institutions and festivals during this time period.
