The Yale Film Archive continues to support faculty and students, even though our space is temporarily closed to visitors due to COVID-19. DVDs, Blu-rays, VHS tapes, and screenplays can be requested for contactless pickup via Quicksearch or Orbis. Please contact us with any questions.
The Yale Film Archive has more than 150 published screenplays that can be checked out or read onsite. The collection started in 2014 with over 70 screenplays donated by Yale alumna, screenwriter, and faculty member Camille Thomasson. In creating the first circulating screenplay collection at the Film Archive, Ms. Thomasson hopes to foster a greater understanding of the screenwriter’s role in the history of film and in the filmmaking process. We share that goal and encourage you to explore this immensely valuable collection.
