UCLA Archives Given Grant to Save Film

The UCLA Film and Television Archives has received a $110,000 grant from the American Film Institute and National Endowment for the Arts Film Preservation Program in support of its nitrate film preservation program.

The UCLA archives are one of 12 organizations receiving AFI/NEA grants totaling $355,600 to preserve, safeguard and restore films that might otherwise have been lost due to the deterioration of the nitrate base used in films until the early 1950s.
