Due to the COVID-19 crisis and in accordance with university and state guidelines, the Harvard Film Archive cinematheque and office will be closed until further notice. HFA staff are working remotely on a range of projects and preparing for an eventual reopening, most likely in 2021. While our physical location remains closed, some remote research services and select collections are available online.
The Harvard Film Archive is a cinematheque and a film archive dedicated to the preservation and public exhibition of film. The cinematheque presents films Friday through Monday year round. Open to the public, all screenings are held in the Archive's 200-seat theater featuring state-of-the-art film and digital projection located in the historic Carpenter Center for the Visual 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. Recent visitors include legendary independent filmmakers Wim Wenders, Agnès Varda, Terence Davies, Guy Maddin, Billy Woodberry and Frederick Wiseman.
