The Pacific Film Archive (PFA) at the University of California Berkeley is one of America’s leading repositories of historically significant cinema. The PFA collects and preserves over 14,000 prints with particular strengths in Japanese, Soviet and Eastern European holdings and includes over 200,000 film related posters, stills, books and documents of critical importance to researchers around the world. In addition to the 3,000 visitors who come to conduct research at the PFA the organization also presents 450 screenings to the public and conducts film education programs for students on campus and in Berkeley schools. With renewed support the PFA will continue to ensure that the marvels of world cinema are both protected and shared broadly with local and international audiences.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity
A grant to the University of California at Berkeley will support the ongoing work of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the home of this research and engagement at the university. The center focuses on both the “cyber” and “security” components of cybersecurity, grounding efforts in a robust, flexible, and evolving understanding of the “possibility” space of cybersecurity. Research will focus on possible security scenarios and explore the technical, political, and economic intersection of these potential futures. The aim of this approach is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the center as well as to add diversity to the cybersecurity conversation. The center brings together academics from the School of Information, the School of Law, Computer Science, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the College of Engineering, among others. It also engages external stakeholders in all facets of this work, including in outreach efforts. (Strategy: Talent Pipeline)
