“In France, cinema is widely referred to as “the seventh art”, along with architecture, sculpture, painting, dance, music and poetry. “Seventh art” is not a phrase one hears often in Britain, or America for that matter. But, in France, they view cinema as a form of artistic expression, worthy of study and discussion.”

Explaining the French Passion for Film
The Telegraph (UK) 05/30/10
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.
