Preservation Projects

The restoration and conservation of films involves artistry and science. This process requires significant amounts of time and expertise. When repairing and preserving old material, conservators will always consider how the original filmmaker intended the film to look and sound. Their goal is to restore or recreate the film to reflect its original disposition and to lengthen the life of the work. All films should reside in a cool, dry and stable environment.
