Film Preservation

C-A-P_Duplicate NegativeThe  Chicago Film Society strives to keep the experience of seeing films on film exciting, viable, and accessible. We have been lucky to work with many studio and archival partners in realizing this vision. However, we recognize that it is also our responsibility to directly support and encourage film preservation and circulation.
