— value isn’t necc. “cinematic”

— screened at festivals

1985 — Young Filmmakers Foundation morphs into…

• original mission was in some ways subsumed by technology: easier

to gain access to multimedia storytelling technology…

• focus more on lending equipment / shared-use facilities


Slide10 l.jpg

Museo del Barrio’s 1990

Latin Film & Video Festival



Slide12 l.jpg

• FVA no longer wanted

to foot film storage costs…

…luckily Donnell Media Center

had already begun sniffing

around the films

PHYSICAL HISTORY OF THE FILMS

• original film club films pooled by Rodger. Original elements kept

at the labs that processed them (mostly @ Du Art)

• creation of YFDC >>> creation of circulating prints

• stored in Fort Lee, NJ from ~’74 until Donnell ingest

— not in climate-controlled storage though

• Donnell has re-leaded, re-housed all the archival elements and

many of the cleanest prints

— weeding down to 2 best copies of YFDC projection prints

— new prints of some films made with Carnegie grants in 2005. New INs?

— not in climate-controlled storage. In fairly cold basement.

offsite storage or cold storage @ new NYPL film facility to-be?

• paperwork offers a good case study of having to round up and

consolidate a collection!!!
