BFC/A has moved!

The Black Film Center/Archive moved to a new home January 7, 2010.  Our new location is in the Kent Cooper Room of the Herman B. Wells Library.  The new Black Film Center/Archive has a conference/classroom room, a seminar room, a quiet reading room, office space for a visiting filmmaker/scholar, the director and archivist, work space for interns, an equipment room, and a climate controlled storage room for collections.

The BFC/A will share space just outside of the archives with the Wells Library for receptions and exhibitions.  Posters from the BFC/A’s collection will be displayed throughout the archives and on the walls of the shared space outside the archives.

We are all really excited about this move!  Please come by and have a look!

About BFC/A

The Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University 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.
