UCLA Festival of Preservation

465 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

Produced by the UCLA Film and Television Archive, this one-of-a-kind festival celebrates the science and spirit of film conservation, showcasing films that have been rescued from extinction by the skilled conservators who work tirelessly to protect them. This year’s festival includes newly restored gems from classic Hollywood, rare silents accompanied by live music, the films of Laurel and Hardy, 1960s television specials, timely independent features, documentaries, and more. We recommend catching Martin Gabel’s sumptuously gothic The Lost Moment (1947), Juleen Compton’s supernatural fairy tale The Plastic Dome of Norma Jean (1966), and Donna Deitch’s sweeping 1985 romance Desert Hearts.
