Established in 1922, DuArt Film & Video has pioneered processing technology and supported independent filmmakers for decades. In early 2013, DuArt began closing its film storage, which included original and printing elements of many independent features, documentaries, student films, industrials, shorts, animation, and foreign films. The Academy coordinated with other major American film archives to bring as many of these films into their vaults as possible. This collection is divided into materials donated to the Academy from DuArt, as well as the collections of dozens of filmmakers whose films now have a safe home at the Archive, and consists of over 500 items. Other archives with material from this project include the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the UCLA Film & Television Archive, the George Eastman House, the Harvard Film Archive and the Anthology Film Archives.
