Please be advised that due to the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, the Harvard Film Archive will be closed to researchers beginning Monday, March 16th. Given the fluid and evolving nature of the situation, we do not currently have a date on which access will resume.
Harvard Film Archive Research Services staff will be working remotely during this period to answer research queries. For questions or concerns regarding the Harvard Film Archive, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For additional information and updates, please visit the Harvard Library Visitor Access website and Harvard University’s main Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage.
The Harvard Film Archive is one of the largest and most significant university-based motion picture collections in the United States, with a collection of 40,000 audio visual items, a growing number of manuscript collections, and nearly one million still photographs, posters, and other promotional materials from around the world and from almost every period in film history. Through a combination of preservation and access, the HFA supports the research and study of cinema at Harvard and beyond.
