Preserving Grain, Presenting Pixels: Film Preservation and Restoration in the Digital Age

How are archival institutions and the film industry addressing what the Academy’s Science and Technology Council has termed "the digital dilemma" when facing the task of preserving and restoring our motion picture history? A panel including Josef Lindner, Preservation Officer for the Academy Film Archive, and National Archives motion picture preservation specialists Bryce Lowe and Christina Kovac will discuss this important issue and present examples from their latest projects. This program is presented by the Academy in partnership with the Charles Guggenheim Center for the Documentary Film at the National Archives and the Foundation for the National Archives.
