Film and Image Resources


  

On February 7, 2017, The Metropolitan Museum of Art implemented a new policy known as Open Access, which makes images of artworks it believes to be in the public domain widely and freely available for unrestricted use, and at no cost, in accordance with the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation and the Terms and Conditions of this website.

It also makes available data from the entire online collection―both works it believes to be in the public domain and those under copyright or other restrictions―including basic information such as title, artist, date, medium, and dimensions. This data is available to all in accordance with the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) designation.

Sixty-four motion pictures, named to the Library’s National Film Registry, are now available online on the Library's website. The collection, "Selections from the National Film Registry," is also available to the public on YouTube.

These films are among hundreds of titles that have been tapped for preservation because of their cultural, historical and aesthetic significance. More information about the National Film Registry can be found at loc.gov/film/.

All of the streaming films in the new online collection are in the public domain.  They are also available as freely downloadable files with the exception of two titles. Additional films will be added periodically to the website.
