Chloe Moretz: Scorsese led her to the Film Foundation

Youth Impact Report 2011: Power of Youth

WHO: Last year, Chloe Moretz appeared as a tomboy in “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” a decades-old vampire in “Let Me In” and the ultraviolent, potty-mouthed Hit Girl in “Kick-Ass.” Her latest role, being released next month, is in Martin Scorsese’s first family adventure, the film preservation-themed “Hugo.”

WHAT: The Film Foundation is a nonprofit org established in 1990 by Scorsese, dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history by providing annual support for preservation and restoration projects at the leading film archives. Since its inception, the foundation has been instrumental in raising awareness of the urgent need for film preservation and has helped to save more than 545 motion pictures.

WHY: “I wasn’t aware of the Film Foundation until I worked with Martin Scorsese on ‘Hugo,’?” Moretz says. “As an actor, I think the preservation work the Film Foundation does, allowing me to see the work of actors that came before, is so important. Without their efforts, I would never have had the opportunity to see the work of these inspiring actors.”

WHAT’S NEXT: Upcoming screenings of restored films funded by the Film Foundation include James W. Horne’s “Way Out West” (1937) starring comedy duo Laurel and Hardy on Oct. 26 at L.A.’s Hammer Museum, and the Nov. 9 screening of Curtis Harrington’s “Night Tide” (1961) at the U. of Colorado at Boulder.
