First, here is a BIG PDF file with a list of all Filmforum shows from January 1976 to December 2007, but with some gaps. For example, we don’t have any from 1977 and 1978 yet. But the vast majority of the shows are here, with titles screened, filmmakers, guests, and notes. We’ll replace it as we update it.
Here are links to calendars from previous seasons, from the previous version of our website:

Some of these shows included high-profile artists whose films are well-covered in the sphere of academia, or on the web. But others are more “ephemeral” films, the knowledge of which has passed out of the public sphere entirely. Part of Filmforum’s mission is to encourage scholars to seek out and revisit some of these artists. If you would like to perform further research on any of the films we have shown in previous seasons, we highly encourage this. Please contact us for more information on how to access our program archives at USC’s Doheny Library.
We’re also scanning copies of past calendars. Here’s one from Filmforum, Oct-Dec 1980, courtesy of Daniel Singelenberg.
And here are more old calendars. Click on the links to open the PDFs. More to come. We’re looking for calendars from the 1970s, late 1983, and 1984.
