HFPA funds Bergman archive

Filmmaker's records in need of preservation

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has donated $10,000 to the Ingmar Bergman archive following news that some of the filmmaker’s papers might not be effectively preserved as the archive faced a $600,000 shortfall to digitize the records (Daily Variety, Aug. 6).

“Ingmar Bergman was one of the most influential filmmakers of all time, and his body of work was incomparable,” said HFPA prexy Jorge Camara. “As soon as the article appeared, I received calls from members asking if we could contribute funds for this vital undertaking.”

The Bergman archive grant is separate from the HFPA’s 2007-08 grants, which were already selected and will be announced Thursday.
