        American Film Institute's Preservation Web Site Launched
The American Film Institute is pleased to announce the launch of a new film
and video preservation section on its ever-growing and award-winning Web
site, AFI OnLine.
The AFI Preservation Site <> contains a
substantial amount of educational materials relating to the preservation
efforts of the AFI and other institutions to save our moving image
heritage. In addition to reading profiles of the National Center for Film
and Video Preservation (NCFVP), the National Moving Image Database (NAMID),
the Film Foundation (headed by Martin Scorsese), the AFI Catalog of Feature
Films, and the AFI Collection at the Library of Congress, Web surfers can
also discover why America's films and videos are disappearing, watch movie
clips illustrating film deterioration and restoration, get tips on careers
in moving image preservation, and link to over 100 international film
archives and institutions.
The site's launch also marks the debut of the new AFI Digital Archive.
Currently, this quickly growing archive houses digital film clips and
information on the recent history-making restoration of America's oldest
surviving feature film, RICHARD III, and PECULIAR PATIENTS' PRANKS, an
early Harold Lloyd short previously believed to be lost.
The American Film Institute is dedicated to advancing and preserving the
art of film, television and other forms of the moving image.  AFI's
programs promote innovation and excellence through teaching, presenting,
preserving and redefining the moving image.
