A collection of excerpts from some early pioneer films made between 1895-1912. The films included are; “Lumiere Premiere Program”, made in 1895; “A Trip to the Moon”, made in 1902; “Great Train Robbery”, made in 1903; and, a series of animations done by Cohl between 1908-1912.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
