WASHINGTON — The National Film Preservation Foundation tapped 23 archival organizations for federally funded grants that will promote the cause of saving deteriorating prints.

A wide range of films have been targeted for protection, including home movies of Ernest Hemingway to “The Light in the Dark,” which stars Lon Chaney.

The National Film Preservation Foundation was established by the Library of Congress in 1996. It is supported by a combination of federal funding and private donations. In recent years it has received a $500,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and a $1 million grant from the National Park Service from a special fund created to preserve U.S. culture.
