Massachusetts Film Office Archives

Item Information

Title:
Massachusetts Film Office Archives
Description:
This collection consists of reference files, photographs and other materials belonging to the former Massachusetts Film Office (MFO) and directors. The files and images were once used for location scouting, to aid out of town film producers and artists in finding the proper settings necessary for their films. In 2007, members of the MFO catalogued each of the 38 boxes in the collection based on their value to current film productions. Historic New England has largely maintained this organization. The collection is arranged into three series: towns and cities, subjects, and “schools.” The photographs are arranged aphetically within these series, with a few exceptions. The collection was processed following the tenants of “More Product, Less Process” and therefore has been minimally described.
