The film exhibition program at the MFAH offers moviegoers a unique venue for appreciating both classic and contemporary films. These screenings include premieres of significant new independent productions. Films are often presented within a theme that focuses on a certain country or region, a specific actor or director, or a particular topic.
In conjunction with the film screenings, the Museum frequently schedules appearances by media artists, critics, and scholars, whose perspectives add fresh insights.
The mission of the MFAH film department is to exhibit and promote film and other moving image as a fine and popular art to the broadest possible audience. In furtherance of its mission, the department’s goals are to introduce and/or expose audiences to the genius of the moving image; to deliver state-of-the-art presentation; to respond to an evolving medium; to stimulate communication and/or dialogue through the shared experience of watching films and video on a big screen; and to inspire the next generation to value film and other screen arts.
