Abstract

Anthology Film Archives was founded in 1969 by Jonas Mekas, Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, and Stan Brakhage. The goal of the archive was to establish a comprehensive collection of the “masterworks” of art cinema (broadly defined by experimental film, European cinema, and some silent Hollywood films) that would screen continuously and be called “The Essential Cinema.” The following manifesto, written by P. Adams Sitney, sets out this (never completed) goal at the inauguration of Anthology in 1970.
