Preserved Projects

Film Archive

To date, the Academy’s active preservation program has preserved over 1,100 films. This list is updated on a quarterly basis. Download the full excel sheet.
In 2007, the Academy began embarking on a comprehensive project to digitize and conserve thousands of videotape elements in the Archive’s collection. Download the list of videotapes that have been digitized and conserved.

Visit Academy Collections, which brings together the holdings of the Academy Film Archive and a portion of the holdings of the Margaret Herrick Library for search and discovery.
