adult film history project

The Adult Film History Project (AFHP) was created by Peter Alilunas in 2014. Archivist Dan Erdman joined as co-director in 2015. The purpose of the Adult Film History Project (AFHP) is to support the increased visibility of adult film history by creating an online archive space that collects and catalogs related materials. While the project originated in Eugene, Oregon at the University of Oregon, the AFHP is intended to be a collaborative effort among scholars around the world with interest in the topic. The AFHP is committed to digitizing, archiving, and encouraging the study of materials related to the history of adult film in order to make that history more visible to researchers of all kinds. At this time our primary goal is developing and establishing the digital infrastructure necessary for an online archive. We expect to have a functional online presence in 2021. We are actively scanning and cataloguing materials now in anticipation of launching the site.


The AFHP depends upon private collections to operate, and does not permanently house any materials. If you are interested in loaning your collection for scanning and digitization, or would like to scan your own collection and donate the files to the archive, please visit the AFHP for more information.
