He and Heather Olson of the Academy Film Archive will preview a major project to restore films from the Archives collection of 28mm safety film.
This special program will also include the premiere of the restored short SCREEN SNAPSHOTS: 7th SERIES, featuring wonderful behind-the-scenes footage of Ramon Navarro and Clara Bow, restored by our 2008 Fellowship recipient Anne Smatla. We will announce this years Fellowship recipient!
