Avant-Garde Film Preservation

    Five films are being preserved through the 2023 Avant-Garde Masters Grant program created by The Film Foundation and the National Film Preservation Foundation.
    One of the films is a loose adaptation of the 1919 German, silent, horror classic film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The title of the adaptation is Caligari’s Cure, an absurdist feature film made in 1982 by Tom Palazzolo.
    Over the course of 20 years, the Avant-Garde Masters Grant program has helped 34 organizations save 219 films significant to the development of the avant-garde in America thanks to the Hobson/Lucas Family Foundation.
