Canyon Cinema Foundation in San Francisco is a non-profit 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 organization was dissolved in 2013, following the transfer of its assets and operations to the Canyon Cinema Foundation.
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.
