GME at Orphans Film Symposium, April 7-10, 2010


Jon Gartenberg and Jeff Capp will attend the Orphans Film Symposium, April 7-10, at the SVA Theatre in New York City.  The theme of this year's conference is "Moving Pictures Around The World."  Through its library excavation projects, GME has uncovered, identified and repatriated original nitrate materials on films including FOUR DAYS LEAVE (1950, Leopold Lindtberg), to the Cinémathèque Suisse, Lausanne, and ORPHAN OF THE WILDERNESS (1936, Ken G. Hall), to the National Film and Sound Archive, Australia; as well as many other rare films to other institutions on a global basis.

Gartenberg Media Enterprises is an in-kind sponsor of the symposium and has donated numerous DVDs from our company's international DVD collection of silent films and avant-garde cinema to support the conference activities.
