Satyajit Ray Honorary Fund

Satyajit Ray was a filmmaker born in India in 1921. He earned a degree in science and economics from Calcutta University, then attended the Tagore’s University art school, Kala Bhavan; however he did not complete his degree there. Ray’s first movie, Pather Panchali (1955), won several international awards, and was the beginning of his career as a world-class director. He went on to create 37 films and documentaries as well as write several books and articles.

The Satyajit Ray Honorary Fund was founded in 1993 to acquire, preserve, and provide scholarly access to Ray’s films, papers, books, and artwork. In 2015, the films, which had previously been stored at the Academy Film Archive, were moved along with the collection, to the PHI Stoa of the Packard Humanities Institute.
