The HFA Public Film Program depends on the generous support of members of the community to ensure the health and longevity of our unique blend of programming. You can become a member by filling out Membership Form below and mailing a check (made out to "Harvard University") to Brittany Gravely, Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138. You may also drop by our offices during regular business hours or sign up at the box office before a screening. Check or cash only. Contact Brittany Gravely if you have any questions.

In addition to the benefits listed below, the HFA also holds Members' Weekends—featuring a special selection of prints from our collection—twice every year. These events include a reception with refreshments, and they are free for all members and their guests.
