The collection consists of records of the Film Department of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art dating from 1970-1980,
the majority of which are published materials from external film organizations. The department was responsible for curating
and screening film series of particular interest to art museum audiences. Experimental and short films were often shown, with
series based primarily on topical themes. The department was dissolved in 1978 amidst museum-wide financial struggles. The
collection is divided into four series: Curated Film Series, Department Administration, Public Relations, and External Film
