The American Film Institute is America’s promise to preserve the heritage of the motion picture, to honor the artists and their work and to educate the next generation of storytellers. As a nonprofit educational arts organization, AFI provides leadership in film and television and is dedicated to initiatives that engage the past, the present and the future of the moving image arts.

The AFI Archive and the AFI Catalog of Feature Films preserve the legacy of America’s film heritage for future generations, comprising rare footage from across the history of the moving image and compiling an authoritative record of the first 100 years of American film.
