CFA is happy to to share that we have been awarded a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation to photochemically preserve three 35mm nitrate films from our Charles E. Krosse Collection. The films being preserved include:
Paying the Piper (ca.1936), anti–New Deal snipe produced by the Jam Handy Organization.
Peoria Community Fund Campaign Film (ca.1935), portrait of 23 local charitable organizations in need of support.
Variety Show at the Peoria Palace Theatre (ca.1934), showcase of local performers backed by a band of female musicians.
With the support of the NFPF, we will be creating new 35mm negatives and prints of these films with Colorlab. Thanks NFPF!
