When the lights come on after a movie, and you reflect on the tragedy of what might have been lost if not for the work of film restoration, it is our fervent hope that you will become a convert to the cause of restoration. We need you on our side.
The Archive might spend hundreds of hours restoring a single film, and the cost of such restorations can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The work of our restorationists ensures that hundreds of titles in our collection can now be experienced by future generations. It is the commitment of our partners in restoration: dedicated movie buffs and friends, supporters, public agencies and charitable foundations, who make this possible.
We invite you to become an active partner in restoration.
