Year: 2017AFA—Anthology Film Archives
Anthology Film Archives (AFA) is an international center for the preservation, study, exhibition of film and video, with a particular focus on independent, experimental, and avant-garde cinema. AFA was opened in 1970 by Jonas Mekas, Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, and Stan Brakhage. Anthology holds one of the world’s most extensive and invaluable collections of avant-garde films and videos, housing, protecting, and preserving works on 35mm, 16mm, and Regular—and Super-8mm film, and on various video formats, as well as film stills and audio recordings. The graphic identity captures the idea of Film as an Art. Focusing on works of art that are created outside the commercial mainstream, Anthology strives to advance the cause and protect the heritage of a kind of cinema that is in particular danger of being lost, overlooked, or ignored.
