Our collection was built mainly thanks to donations and deposits from directors, producers or collectors. We collect films on Algeria, Africa and the Arab world, films by foreign authors or Algerian directors and more widely from the world.

We are looking for professional or amateur films, fictions or documentaries, artists’ films, rushes but also shooting photographs, original scenarios, working documents for film professionals (costume designers, scripts, etc.), script notes, costumes, accessories , costuming work, shooting photographs. By enriching the collection, you remain the owner of your deposit. The deposit is associated with an authorization to use these objects for cultural, educational and teaching purposes. The good preservation and transmission of the deposited objects will be ensured by the Algerian Cinémathèque.
