The James and Paula Coburn Foundation is an avid believer in the celebration and preservation of the history of film and television. With a legacy that exists largely on screen, the Coburns believed in the profound affect that art had on communities and the value it holds at the center of transforming culture. Together with KCET, the Foundation is able to nurture the critical programmatic work needed to ensure that the beauty and importance of the entertainment industry’s history and impact is sustained.

Through a partnership with KCET, the Foundation has supported special screening series, film education events and preservation efforts as an extension of the Coburns’ passion for the arts.
