Canyon Cinema Foundation in San Francisco is a nonprofit dedicated to educating the public about independent, non-commercial, experimental, avant-garde and artist-made moving images. It meets this aim by nurturing scholarship and awareness with public programming at universities and nonprofit cultural organizations worldwide.
The organization was originally founded as a filmmakers co-operative in about 1961 by Bruce Baillie as an exhibition outlet for independent film, and was formally established as an independent, non-commercial film distributor in 1967, Canyon Cinema, Inc. This corporation was dissolved in 2013, following the transfer of its assets and operations to the Canyon Cinema Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Canyon stands alongside The Film Makers Cooperative as one of the only major sources for prints and research information of avant-garde and experimental film in America.
