The historical sweep and technical wizardry of the UCLA Film & Television Archive's preservation projects—from early silent films and Golden Age classics, to fascinating rarities and contemporary gems—are showcased in the Archive’s biennial Festival of Preservation. Hailed by The Los Angeles Times as “the city’s most surprising, most stimulating, most invigorating film event,” the festival now heads east for its premiere New York engagement, featuring breathtaking new restorations of forgotten classics by Robert Altman, Cecil B. DeMille and Douglas Sirk, rare films by Samuel Beckett and John Steinbeck, and much more!
