The Film Preservation Blogathon Walks into the Sunset

modern_times_F

Another day, and another film preservation blogathon comes to an end. We had a lot of enthusiasm for our fourth project, Cupid In Quarantine (1913), that will be repatriated to the United States from EYE Filmmuseum in The Netherlands, and restored, rescored, and streamed by our funding recipient the National Film Preservation Foundation. While the total sum raised in this blogathon was a modest $1,700 when compared with other years, the NFPF and we are still thrilled that so many of you chose to support this project.

As promised, we have prizes for some lucky donors. (Winners will be contacted by email for shipping particulars.)
