The mission of the Film Archive department is to collect, index, restore and preserve national and international film productions. At present the collection includes 13,000 titles – productions from 1895 to the present: feature films, documentaries, experimental films, home movies and animations.
The collection does not aim at completeness. Rather, the films are selected as examples of artistic works and historical documents – and of the medium’s development.
The collection forms the basis for exploring film. Films which have been preserved are available for screenings in movie theaters or can be viewed for research purposes.
Films can be borrowed from the Film Distribution department or be booked for on-site viewings.
