 NEED HELP? Whether you are a collector, museum, institute,  author, researcher, or just someone interested in Louisiana film  history, we have wide variety of areas that we can help you with.


90% of all silent films made in the U.S. are already lost forever! And 50% of all films made before 1951 are already lost forever! IF THAT'S NOT BAD ENOUGH.. film ACCESSORIES are in WORSE shape. We have a 5 minute video to explain - take a look!
