About Anthology Film Archives
Anthology Film Archives is an international center for the preservation, study and exhibition of film and video with a particular focus on American independent and avant-garde cinema and its precursors found in classic European, Soviet and Japanese film. Evolved from roots and visions that go back to the early Sixties, when Jonas Mekas, the director of the Film-Makersâ€™ Cinematheque, a showcase for avant-garde films, dreamed of establishing a permanent home where the growing number of new independent/avant-garde films could be shown on a regular basis.
