Film Reopening Program for Fall 2019

October 21, 2019

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art’s Department of Film announces a selection of fall 2019 programs that will open with the newly-expanded MoMA on October 21, 2019 in The Debra and Leon Black Family Film Center in The Ronald S. and Jo Carole Lauder Building. Celebrating the Museum’s 30,000-strong film collection, the reopening slate reflects the diversity and artistic range championed by MoMA film curators for over eight decades. The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Galleries host Private Lives Public Spaces, a major exhibition of home movies and amateur films. Programming in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters will pay homage to the Department of Film’s founding history, and celebrate the collection through a kaleidoscope of thematic and historical perspectives. These programs will include explorations of the Museum’s first film series, early iterations of the Hollywood studio system—and indie films’ existence outside of that system, and feminist and queer experiences on film. On Fridays this fall, continuous, open film screenings will offer a lively, unique moviegoing experience for all Museum visitors.

Support for the exhibition is provided by the Annual Film Fund.
