For our final screenings of the year, we are presenting three movies over two nights all in order to celebrate and showcase the brilliant work that has been done in the world of 35mm film restoration.
Our overarching theme for the weekend is marginalized populations and narratives. These films involve subjects and topics that, like restoration itself, don't often get the time or discussion that they rightly deserve.
So please join us for one or both evenings in order to hear the speakers and guests discuss the ways in which the films were restored, the people who were involved and see why preservation and restoration is so vital to film's survival!
This is our final benefit screening of the year so show your support for film and film archiving!
