PRESERVATION

One half of all films made before 1950, and over 80% made before 1929 are lost forever. The Film Foundation preserves and restores film -- features, documentaries, independent, avant-garde, home movies, and silent films, ensuring their survival for future generations.

EDUCATION

The Story of Movies curriculum teaches middle and high school students the language of cinema.
