Pratt Libraries 16mm Film Collection

The Pratt Institute Libraries have a collection of over 2,400 unique titles on 16mm.  The bulk of the collection was donated by the Brooklyn Public Library and includes full-length and short films on art, architecture, design, history, and social topics; educational films; animation for adults and children; public service announcements; feature films; and experimental films.  Most films date to the 1970s and 80s.

A selection of these titles have been processed and can be found through the Library Catalog. Pratt faculty, staff, and students who have been certified may circulate two designated films for up to seven days from the Lower Level of the Brooklyn Library.  

Send an email to video.library@pratt.edu for more information about becoming certified to circulate 16mm films and projectors.

Patrons are welcome to schedule a viewing room for individuals or classes by contacting room.library@pratt.edu.  Please be sure to include the title of the film you would like to view in your room request.
