Yale Student Film Archive
FilmNet archives and preserves the curricular and extracurricular films of Yale filmmakers. These works live on in the learning environment for future students to reflect upon and be inspired by.
The creation of the Yale Student Film Archive was inspired by the filmmaking and teachings of Thomas Allen Harris, a professor of African American and Film and Media Studies at Yale. Filmmaker and academic, Harris’ work challenges and redefines historical archives. For more information about the work of Thomas Allen Harris and his students, explore the Archive Aesthetics and Community Storytelling exhibition. The exhibition itself engages the intersecting ideas of media, artistic disciplines, and archive.
