About the Program for Art on Film
The Program for Art on Film is an international clearinghouse for
information about moving image media on the visual arts. Founded in 1984 as a
joint venture between the J. Paul Getty Trust and The Metropolitan Museum of
Art, the Program relocated to Columbia University in 1994 where it is
administered by the University Libraries. The Program was established to foster
new ways of thinking about the relationship between art and moving image media,
and to encourage critical analysis of media productions. Its purpose is to
define issues, develop programs, and disseminate information that will support
the effective production and use of moving image media in order to enhance and
broaden public understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts.
The Program compiles and maintains the Art on Screen Database, issues a
newsletter, develops publications, presents workshops and seminars, and has
produced a series of short films and videos involving collaborations between
art scholars and filmmakers.
