About Films at the Whitney

Films at the Whitney builds on a half-century-long tradition of film screenings at Yale. Inaugurated in 2009, it’s now an integral part of the dynamic film culture on campus.

We support a host of film-related events—from screenings of Hollywood and world cinema classics to panel discussions with documentarians. Each semester our graduate student curator organizes public screenings of rare, topical, and cinematically significant films. These screenings are always free and open to all!

Administered by Diane Berrett Brown, Films at the Whitney also cosponsors film festivals, conferences, director talkbacks, pre-release screenings, and film series in collaboration with Yale departments, programs, and student groups.
