National Council on American-Soviet Friendship Collection


The National Council on American-Soviet Friendship program emphasized cultural interchange between American and Soviet people. This rare collection of films was donated to the Archive in 1994 and 1999, thanks to the efforts of the Council’s last Chair, Academy member John Randolph. It consists of over 1,000 16mm prints, representing about 700 titles. These films cover all aspects of Soviet life from the early 1960’s to the late 1980’s including art, politics, history, literature, film, music, folk traditions, natural resources, sports, science, technology, the environment, and international relations.
