    Executive Director of the National Film Preservation Foundation

The San Francisco–based National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF) is dedicated to saving American films made outside the commercial sector. Since the NFPF’s inception in 1997, the organization has preserved more than 2,200 films. Executive director Jeff Lambert will offer an overview of the mission and activities of the NFPF and present a selection of films they have helped preserve, from silent-era social-issue films, documentaries, and short narratives to orphan films and artist-made independent productions.
