You can help save or digitize a specific film. At present we are fundraising for 4K transfers of Fischinger films, and for several Belson films, including digitization of some of Belson's unseen early tests and experiments. We are also fundraising for an Open Source cataloging system which will put guides to, and much more of, the collections online.
