LOS ANGELES FILMFORUM PRESENTS THE FILM REGISTRY SHOW!
ON MARCH 21

LOS ANGELES, February 20, 2009 – You’ve never seen a show like this!
Every year the Library of Congress selects 25 films to be added to its film registry. Some are well-known; some obscure. Filmforum presents, for the first time ever, a selection of the brilliant films picked by the Library of Congress for its film registry in 2009.
Two of the makers are Filmforum members who will be present at the show – Janie Geiser and Chuck Workman!

We’ll be presenting:

Quasi at the Quackadero (Sally Cruikshank, 1975, 10 min., color)
The Lead Shoes (Sydney Peterson, 1949, 18 minutes, 16mm, b&w)
The Red Book (Janie Geiser, 1994, 11 minutes, 16mm, color)
A Study in Reds (Miriam Bennett, 1932, 18 min, 16mm to DVD) – to be confirmed

“Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the registry that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant to be preserved for all time. These films are not selected as the "best" American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture.
