“The Archive Project” is a new initiative launched by the SFSU School of Cinema in 2020 as a volunteer-led program to promote student engagement with the School of Cinema’s instructional film collection and the student film archives dating back to the 1970s. Due to ongoing budget cuts, the school has not prioritized cataloging or organizing the majority of these materials. As a short term solution, the undergraduate film exhibitions course CINE 601 was redesigned to explore the archive through student-curated film programs. Utilizing the rough, digital copies of the student film collection, the class researched and developed six curated film programs to share on the class website “Streaming State,” and secured screening permissions from alumni filmmakers. This poster examines these student-led curation projects and also details some of the opportunities of online learning through archives, such as community building through the alumni networks and broadening the audience through online screenings.
