The American Cinematheque is a
501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

OUR HISTORY

In 1984, after an inspiring trip to the French Cinematheque in Paris, Director Sydney Pollack joined forces with the team behind the legendary FILMEX to create a year-round film festival in Los Angeles where cinephiles and filmmakers could discover, engage with and discuss the seventh art. Since 1987, The American Cinematheque has provided diverse film programming and live in-person discussions and events with thousands of filmmakers and luminaries, presenting both new and repertory cinema to Los Angeles.

True to the hope and intent of Sydney Pollack, the American Cinematheque is a place where both the public and members of the film industry come together as a community with the common language of film.
