The Film and Video Center is run from the School of Humanities and the Program in Film Studies from the University of California, Irvine.
Our mission is to provide Orange County with quality, original works of art unavailable anywhere else, to promote film and video making and create a culture receptive to new and unique movie-going experiences.

We do not make a profit on our film programs, and depend on your support and participation to continue to grow and prosper. For the first time, we are offering the chance to join our team. Become a Friend of the Film and Video Center and support the arts in Orange County. If you attend our screenings often, this membership will reward you with savings and benefits. Even if you can’t make it out that often, your donations are a welcome show of support to allow us to offer more films, more special guests and higher visibility across Orange County and Southern California in the future.
