Treasures from the Yale Film Archive
Treasures from the Yale Film Archive is a monthly, year-round screening series showcasing the 35mm print collection of the Yale Film Study Center, an Associate of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF). Film screenings are free and open to the public, and take place at the Whitney Humanities Center, the last remaining 35mm film venue in New Haven County. As the movie-going landscape is increasingly transformed through digital technology, the Treasures series is committed to presenting films in their original format, projected onto the big screen before an audience, as they were intended to be seen. Each screening features an introduction and printed film notes (archived online), and they frequently feature invited guests including filmmakers and faculty. Films screened range from contemporary classics and foreign films to silent features with live musical accompaniment. Drawing on the broad spectrum of films held in the Yale Film Archive and the expertise of the university’s film community, the Treasures series plays an integral role in the film culture of Yale and New Haven. The series is curated by the Yale Film Study Center staff, presented in collaboration with Films at the Whitney, and made possible through support from Paul L. Joskow, ‘70 M.Phil, ‘72 Ph.D.
