To Save and Project: The 16th MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation

January 04, 2019–January 31, 2019

Posted on December 5, 2018

The Museum of Modern Art announces the 16th annual edition of To Save and Project, a festival dedicated to celebrating newly preserved and restored films from archives, studios, distributors, foundations, and independent filmmakers around the world. Running from January 4 to 31, 2019, this year’s festival includes more than 50 newly preserved features and shorts from Asia, Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the United States—virtually all of them North American or New York premieres—by filmmakers as diverse as Fernando de Fuentes, André de Toth, Safi Faye, Ha Gil-jong, F. W. Murnau, and Doris Wishman. Many of these films are receiving their first American screening since their original release; others will be shown in meticulously restored versions that recapture the long-lost sound and image quality of their initial release; and some will be publicly screened for the first time ever in New York.

To Save and Project opens with a tribute to Barbet Schroeder through all of his documentaries. Schroeder, who is also celebrated for fiction films like TricheursReversal of FortuneBarfly, and Single White Female, will present his self-described “trilogy of evil”: General Idi Amin Dada: A Self Portrait (1974), Terror’s Advocate (2007), and the New York premiere theatrical run, from January 4 to 10, of The Venerable W. (2017). Other highlights include special guest appearances by Peggy Ahwesh, Wolf-Eckart Bühler, George Griffin, Barbara Hammer, Yvonne Rainer, and Arturo Ripstein. The festival concludes with the world premiere theatrical run, from January 25 to 31, of MoMA’s new restoration of Ida Lupino’s melodrama Never Fear (The Young Lovers) (1950).

Organized by Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art.
