Founded in 1961, San Francisco Cinematheque is the premier showcase of avant-garde and experimental film, video and multimedia performance in the US. Our mission is to make works of experimental film, video and multi-media performance a prominent part of the cultural landscape of the Bay Area and beyond. Cinematheque presents an average of 35 public programs annually at venues including Artists’ Television Access, The Exploratorium, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
