UCLA Festival of Preservation

Pot of Gold (1941)

"The city's most surprising, most stimulating, most invigorating film event is not the Oscars,…but the UCLA Film & Television Archive's irreplaceable Festival of Preservation."
—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"A true embarrassment of riches."
—Pacific Cinémathèque, Vancouver, British Columbia

The historical sweep and technical wizardry of UCLA Film & Television Archive's preservation projects—from early silent films and Golden Age classics, to fascinating rarities and contemporary gems—are showcased in our biennial UCLA Festival of Preservation.

Audiences celebrate an entire century's worth of moving images with film noir, silents, Classic Hollywood cinema, television programs, newsreels, contemporary independent films and more. The month-long event is not only an established part of the Los Angeles cultural landscape, but also a preeminent film event worldwide.
