The American Museum of the
Moving Image tells the story of the innovation and artistry that make the moving
image the most powerful artistic and cultural influence of the twentieth
century. The Museum houses the nation's most important collection of motion
picture and television artifacts. It presents retrospective film series, often
accompanied by discussions with the filmmakers themselves, and digital media
seminars with industry pioneers. Education programs for junior high school and
high school students connect moving image media with the study of the humanities
and sciences. Exhibitions elegantly illustrate how the art and the craft of
moving image making are inseparable.
