Video and Film Lending Library

The AFSC Video and Film Lending Library has been providing educators, activists and filmmakers with audio-visual programs for over 55 years. Our collection is an archive of over 1500 DVD’s, videos, films, and slideshows produced between 1960 and 2010, making us perhaps the largest lending library of programs on peace and social justice issues in the country. To request a video or film, email the film librarian at and type “video loan” in the subject field. You can also call the librarian at 617-623-5288.

We ship programs to every state, but cannot ship things internationally. For those living in the Greater Boston Area, you can also pick up programs at our office. For public, group, or classroom showings, we ask donations ranging from $10-$20 to help defray some of our expenses. For home viewing we ask for a $5 donation. We also ask viewers to pay for shipping. For those living near our office we have a $2 per day home video service.

Cambridge, MA

The Cambridge office serves as the main administrative hub for the Northeast region. It also houses four of AFSC’s programs:

The Healing and Transformative Justice Program works with survivors of crime, those convicted of crime, and their families and communities.

The Material Assistance Program (MAP) gives clothing and basic house goods to people in need in the Greater Boston area.

The Peace and Economic Security Program (PES) works for nuclear abolition, coordinates international peace building efforts, and advocates for peace here at home.

Project Voice advocates for better immigration policies, educates immigrants and low wage workers about their rights, and organizes a host of related community campaigns.

In addition, our Cambridge-based New England Regional Office coordinates the efforts of our New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts and South East New England programs, all of which engage their regions in a variety of peace and justice efforts, and our Wabanaki program, which works for justice and healing in Maine’s Native communities.

AFSC’s Video and Film Lending Library is also located in Cambridge.
