It was a night to celebrate when UCLA Film & Television Archive graduate student interns had the opportunity to meet the alumni whose student films they restored and screened at the Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum. The December 1 program, UCLA Student Film Restorations: Present Preserving the Past(opens in a new tab), was the culmination of an internship that took place over a 10-week period. Under the supervision of Archive staff, the inaugural group of three interns inspected, digitally restored and preserved three UCLA student films(opens in a new tab) from the 1970s and 1980s. The screening was followed by a conversation with the filmmakers and graduate students. Present Preserving the Past was funded by the Myra Reinhard Family Foundation.
