Anthology Film Archives

Archival Loans:

Anthology adheres to archival film handling and projection policies and does not operate as a commercial distributor for the films, video, and other audio-visual materials in its collection. AFA is only able to loan selected materials from its motion picture collection on a “first come, first served” basis for occasional public screenings by qualified non-profit organizations, subject to availability and certain terms and conditions.

Anthology cannot loan materials for private screenings, for classroom screenings, or for commercial exhibition. Anthology holds only one circulating print of most films available for loan. For this reason, Anthology must receive requests in writing at least 45 days in advance of the desired screening date. No late requests will be considered. Please download our Archival Print Loan Policy to review procedures and request a loan.
