For Artists

Founded in Bruce Baillie’s Canyon, California backyard in 1961, Canyon Cinema is dedicated to educating the public about independent, non-commercial, experimental moving image art. We manifest this commitment by providing access to our unrivaled collection to universities and cultural organizations worldwide, as well as cultivating scholarship and appreciation of artist-made cinema.
