About the Project...

FilmCare.org is a central resource for best practices in film preservation that provides guidelines for dealing with the preservation of all types and formats of film materials. It addresses the requirements for preserving black-and-white and color film and nitrate, acetate, and polyester-based film. It also addresses specific issues for motion-picture film, sheet film, still roll film, microfilm, and aerial film, as well as the management of collections containing a variety of media types (certainly the most common real-life situations encountered in the field). This approach focuses primarily on storage, condition surveys, and the development and implementation of best-fit environment-based strategies.

Is this website only for organizations, or also for collectors of 16mm or 35mm film?

Don't know. I registered as the Daniel D. Teoli Jr. Archival Collection. It is not a biz or legal entity. Had no issues.

My storage conditions were rated poor by the online evaluator.
