A View from the Vaults: Recent Film Acquisitions

July 18, 2018–August 08, 2018

Posted on June 12, 2018

The Museum of Modern Art’s film collection now comprises more than 30,000 film titles. And with the 1996 opening of the Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center in Hamlin, Pennsylvania, the Museum has a state-of-the-art facility where these moving-image treasures can be stored. This two-building complex, now operating for more than 20 years, gives us ample space and the ideal controlled environment in which to preserve materials essential to film history, and provides our staff with the ability to plan confidently for the acquisition, cataloging, and care of future films.

Comprised of recent additions, this series illustrates the collection’s enormous diversity, from classic and contemporary Hollywood feature productions (GiantButch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Amadeus), to independent works that explore social issues (Into the Abyss), to international films that portray cultural values not unlike our own (Waiting for HappinessSalaam Bombay!). We included a few just-plain-funny movies, too.

Organized by Anne Morra, Associate Curator, Department of Film.
