The subject files make up the ninth series of sub-group one in the Department of Film and Video Archive. They contain research materials on various topics, including international cinema, from the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s. Curators referred to these files for screening programs and other events at the museum. The files are minimally processed and kept entirely in their original order. The materials have been re-housed in acid-free archival boxes but not file folders. All original folder titles were kept.
