The Department of Film and Video lectures and interviews with artists make up the second sub-group in the Department of Film and Video Archive. It is the second of three sub-groups of materials in the archive. It contains all of the audio and video recordings of film and video events at the museum. Many of these are lectures were held in the Carnegie Lecture Hall (now part of the Oakland Main Branch of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh) or the Carnegie Museum of Art Theater with film and video artists such as Freude Bartlett, Stan Brakhage, Robert Breer, Takahiko Iimura, Peter Kubelka, and many others. The majority of these recordings took place as part of the recurring Independent Filmmakers Series (later known as the Visiting Filmmakers Series or simply Visiting Artist Series), which featured lectures and workshops with moving-image artist from a wide range of genres. Several of the recordings contain conversations or interviews with Sally Dixon, film curator from 1970 to 1975, and Bill Judson, film curator from 1975 to 2003, and other local scholars and personalities like Pittsburgh Filmmakers’ Robert Haller. There are 157 audio recordings and 25 video recordings.
