Film Culture: The Legacy of the Pacific Film Archive

Film Quarterly marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Pacific Film Archive (now officially known as BAMPFA) with a webinar discussion of the PFA’s invaluable role in cultivating film culture that expands upon the “Special Focus” in FQ‘s Fall 2021 issue.

The webinar will explore the role the PFA and other non-profit exhibition institutions such as MoMA have played in shaping passion for global arthouse cinema. Longtime PFA curator Albert Johnson’s important legacy as a champion of world cinema will be discussed along with the PFA’s significance as a platform for Black, African, and other international and independent filmmakers.

FQ Editor-in-Chief B. Ruby Rich will moderate a conversation with Kathy Geritz (BAMPFA), Edith Kramer (BAMPFA), Josslyn Luckett (Film Quarterly), Cornelius Moore (California Newsreel), Rajendra Roy (MoMA), and David Schwartz (Netflix).

The webinar is free and open to the public.
