Pix drawing preservation funds

Recipients include Duke U., NYU, Chi Archives

The National Film Preservation Foundation awarded its first grants for film preservation to 28 different archives, libraries and museums. As a result, 67 now relatively obscure pics, deemed “historically significant,” will be guaranteed to survive, according to a foundation statement.

Not owned by commercial interests, the pics, which “reflect the vibrant diversity of America’s film heritage,” include “The Exiles” (1961), a feature about Native Americans in Los Angeles; an acclaimed 1972 sex educational film; home movies of New Orleans jazz funerals; and various documentaries as well as other features.

Recipients include Anthology Film Archives, Duke U., NYU, Chicago Film Archives and Texas Archive of the Moving Image.

Grants, established last year and awarded Wednesday, will enable the striking of new preservation masters and access copies.

NFPF, a nonprofit org created by Congress in 1996, is a charitable arm of National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress.
