January 11 to February 27

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences begins a year-long residency at Metrograph bringing exciting and entertaining programs to the big screen. This monthly series will showcase film prints from the Academy Film Archive, home to one of the most diverse and extensive motion picture collections in the world. Programs will feature onstage conversations with filmmakers and scholars of motion pictures, tributes, newsreels, rarely seen clips from past Oscar® ceremonies, and home movies from Hollywood legends.

Since 2009, the Academy has conducted a red carpet event for its Governors Awards, presented to individuals in recognition of prestigious lifetime achievements in cinema. This year, in the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center, four Academy Honorary Awards were presented to recognize four extraordinary bodies of work, those of directors Charles Burnett and Agnès Varda, cinematographer Owen Roizman, and actor Donald Sutherland. Now, with the Academy’s support, Metrograph is keeping the party going here in New York, with screenings to pay tribute to each of these worthies.
