The Black Film Center/Archive was established in 1981 as the first archival repository dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available historically and culturally significant films by and about black people. The BFC/A's primary objectives are to promote scholarship on black film and to serve as an open resource for scholars, researchers, students, and the general public; to encourage creative film activity by independent black filmmakers; and to undertake and support research on the history, impact, theory, and aesthetics of black film traditions.
Summer Hours: From May 12 through August 22, the BFC/A is open for research from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Advance appointments are requested for film viewings and special collections access.
Please note that parking at the Wells Library is limited due to construction. Visit this page for further information and updates.
