We are proud to announce that the Yale Film Study Center has received a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation to support preservation of 16 MILLIMETER EARRINGS, a 1979 film by director and Yale alumnus Robert Withers made in collaboration with Meredith Monk. Learn more about this project here.

The Yale Film Study Center, an Associate of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), has a collection of nearly 6,000 35mm and 16mm titles, including both print and pre-print holdings. A wide variety of genres and national cinemas are represented in the collection, from Hollywood features to experimental shorts, from documentaries to Bollywood musicals. The collection spans more than 120 years of cinema history, and includes films from around the globe as well as a number of films made by Yale alumni and about Yale University. Founded in 1982, the Film Study Center archive traces its roots to film collections at Yale dating back to the 1960s, including the historic archives of a number of prominent film collectors. Read more about collections within the larger archive on our Film Collections page.

The film holdings of the Film Study Center are included in the Library’s Orbis database. To search the 35mm and 16mm print collection, click here.

Films in the Film Study Center collection are available for screenings for Yale classes as well as for loans to qualified non-profit institutions. Those interested in screening, borrowing, or otherwise accessing material in the collection should contact Archive & Special Collections Manager Brian Meacham via email.
