Tip #1308: The Academy Film Archive
From Collections to interviews to A.frame, the Academy Film Archive is a great resource.
The Academy Film Archive, part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, documentation, exhibition and study of motion pictures. The Academy Film Archive is home to one of the most diverse and extensive motion picture collections in the world.
A new section is A.Frame. “Every new movie has a story. Whether it began as an idea many years ago or took hundreds of artists to bring to life, these stories unfold through the people behind the lens. It is in this spirit that we have created A.frame, a new way to appreciate the movies you love and discover your next favorite.” (Academy website)
In addition to A.Frame, there are other facets that make the Film Archive worth exploring, one of my favorites is Collections.
- Alfred Hitchcock
- Cecil B. DeMille
- Dalton Trumbo
- David Lynch
- And many, many, MANY more
