Since 2011, CHANEL has been a proud sponsor of The Museum of Modern Art’s annual Film Benefit. 2020 marks a new chapter in this history of patronage, as the partnership has been expanded to make CHANEL lead sponsor of film at MoMA.
Founded in 1935, MoMA’s Department of Film cares for more than 30,000 films and 1.5 million film stills, and has one of the strongest international film collections, ranging from classics to the most innovative and experimental works of today. As a longtime supporter of art and cinema, CHANEL is committed to supporting film as one of art’s most potent mediums through the creation of new opportunities for filmmakers and writers, and the preservation of cinema’s worldwide legacy. CHANEL is delighted to partner with MoMA to share its vast film collection, present an unparalleled program of special series like Documentary Fortnight and The Contenders, and restore some of the film industry’s most treasured works, including Night of the Living Dead (George Romero, 1968) and Rosita (Ernst Lubitsch, 1923).
Film at MoMA is made possible by CHANEL.
