EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 31, 2017: DONATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR ACP
The Albanian Cinema Project is no longer accepting donations, effective December 31, 2017. The Albanian Cinema Project forged partnerships to fund our audiovisual preservation work and our educational initiatives, including the Archives in Motion (AIM) Workshops. All donations were tax deductible through The San Francisco Media Archive.
FILM RESTORATION: 35mm sound film runs at 24 frames per second. This means that it costs a little over $2 to preserve one frame of film and $50 to preserve one second of film.
HERITAGE PRESERVATION: A general donation to ACP will support the cleaning of all film elements and the eventual move to a mold free facility.
Five Films in Five Years
The time has come to bring Albanian film heritage to the world.
While Albania leapt into the 21st century, the Albanian Film Archives remain shrouded in darkness. The Albanian Cinema Project is working overtime to bring Albania’s rich cinema history back into the light. Our ultimate goal is to build a new archives and exhibition space in Tirana, Albania, as well as to restore more Albanian Films for worldwide exhibition and distribution. To achieve this, we have partnered with film preservation labo-ratories and film festivals throughout the world to preserve 5 Albanian films in 5 years. Each of these films will screen first at film festivals and then to larger audiences.
