The Centre Pompidou’s film collection

The Centre Pompidou’s film collection includes films by experimental directors, art films, and installations by visual artists. The collection started in 1976 when the museum bought their first 100 films.

The collection is unique in the world and comprises 1,400 works - most of which are on film - by visual artists and film directors from a wide range of geographic and cultural backgrounds.
