About Charles S. Cohen

“I was in a position to help, and I thought that I should. They are a wonderful group doing important work, and there is no other place to go and see this kind of thing. They needed a storage space for their archives, and this meets their needs.”

The Film-Makers’ Coop / New American Cinema Group is very grateful to our benefactor, Charles S. Cohen, whose generous support allows us to thrive in New York City.

Our on-location screening room has been named in his honor.
