Lieberfarb medal of honor

Recipient's vision led 'to the return of great cinema'

Former Warner Home Video president Warren Lieberfarb was presented a Festival Medal by Festival president Gilles Jacob Thursday for his work in developing the DVD.

The festival features what may prove to be a big part of the legacy of Lieberfarb, including premieres and screenings of restored films and documentaries of the Charles Chaplin.

Thursday’s presentation was made at the DVD Espace, which Jacob said is an example of how the Festival has embraced the format that he said “will revive Hollywood’s Golden Age.” He thanked Lieberfarb for his vision that will “lead to the return of great cinema.”

Lieberfarb said he was humbled to receive the award in France, “the land of Lumiere, of Jean Renoir, of Francois Truffaut and of literally millions of devoted fellow-lovers of film in all its richness.”
