American Museum of the Moving Image

35th Avenue & 36th Street
Astoria, New York

Phone: 718 784 0077 --

Statement of Purpose:

National museum and cinematheque.

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.
