  Film Preservation Study: Los Angeles Public Hearing, February 1993 - National Film Preservation Board (Library of ...
The first great era of film preservation involved duplication of physical materials that were often the property of the archives and frequently the films being preserved were in the public domain, such as silent films, whose copyright had expired.
We have a film library and study center which is open to the public and is used extensively also by the students and faculty of the University of California.
Those films hold up very well and on a comparative basis, if you went down through all the physical characteristics the films are put through, there is no doubt that polyester based material is far superior to both nitrate and safety triacetate films in its characteristics and in its expected longevity.

 Film Preservation Study - National Film Preservation Board (Library of Congress)
Films are not simply the province of "buffs" or exercises in nostalgia, but this century's most vital social memory and its most distinctive art form-- one at which the United States has excelled.
Film preservation is necessary because of the very nature of these materials: emulsions fade, the binder breaks down, and the plastics of the support base decompose.
Films without copyright protection, and thus available for use without licensing, are usually labeled "public domain," a sometimes confusing term because of its application to several groups of films.

 1993 Black Maria Film + Video Festival Essay
Blinded by the bright screen in the dark theatre, the sharp discretionary blade of selection falls between those formulaic systems that manipulate, that position an individual's thoughts and emotions, and the alienating morass of those fractured image fragments that accompany the noise, the anodyne or programmed sound.
As the Festival grew, the films and tapes for prescreening traveled up and down the neighborhood from the East Orange Public Library in a nearby town, where the post office dropped the entries, to the neighbor's front porch where the resident family registered the work.
From the film festival home for prescreening and storage to the judging site at the regional community center, the work went up and down, back and forth, and eventually on the road or back to the library for redistribution to the submitting artists.

During the filming, I did speak with a few people on the set about a possible speaking role, but it never came to fruition.
