Inaugurated in 2009 by the Whitney Humanities Center to help foster a dynamic film culture at Yale, Films at the Whitney supports a host of other film-related events, including
- film conferences and festivals
- special screenings and workshops with visiting filmmakers
- faculty- and student-organized screenings , and more.
Films at the Whitney welcomes proposals for screening events. Scheduling priority is given to proposals from student organizations, academic departments and programs, and university libraries and museums.
Films at the Whitney screenings take place in the auditorium of the Whitney Humanities Center.
