Co-presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and American Cinematheque

The American Cinematheque and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are proud to present the HFPA’S 2020 Restoration Summit – two days of exciting film rediscoveries, onstage dialogues and illustrated talks that celebrate the art and science of film preservation and restoration. Demonstrating its passionate commitment to saving and reviving films from around the world, the HFPA is becoming one of the leading institutions in the field.

This second summit begins with a deep dive into the earliest days of film, with the “Retour de Flamme” presentation by Serge Bromberg, famed film preservationist and founder of Lobster Films. Featuring clips and his own live musical accompaniment, Bromberg will discuss the work of some of the most famous filmmakers of silent age, including the Lumière Brothers, Georges Méliès, Charlie Chaplin, and Buster Keaton.

Through its support of IndieCollect, the HFPA is also stepping up its restoration of significant American independent films, and will unveil the world premiere of F.T.A. (1972) on Saturday evening. Producer and star Jane Fonda will present the film, which chronicles the “Free the Army” satirical revue that toured military bases around the Pacific at the height of the Vietnam War. On Sunday, The HFPA will also present IndieCollect’s new 4K restorations of two “Treasures of African American Cinema:” THE STORY OF A THREE DAY PASS (1968), Melvin Van Peebles’ directorial debut about racial injustice in 1960s France and NATIONTIME-GARY (1972), director William Greaves’ documentary about the 1972 National Black Political Convention.

Late on Saturday evening, Eddie Muller will present the Film Noir Foundation's new restoration of THE BLACK VAMPIRE, a stunning Argentine film noir that reimagines Fritz Lang’s classic M. And finally, closing the Summit, Gianluca Farinelli, Director of the Cineteca di Bologna, pays tribute to Italian maestro Federico Fellini, whose 100th birthday will be celebrated around the world this year. His presentation will be followed by Cineteca di Bologna's stunning restoration of FELLINI’S ROMA, funded by the HFPA.
