  1. Okay, I give up. My understanding of this film lending program is to provide the general public with the opportunity to view well preserved classic films from the Library’s 35mm collection that they might not otherwise be afforded the opportunity to view

    I don ‘t own a 35mm protector and I don’t know anyone else who does with the exception of m some local movie houses who charge admission for viewings.

    So why, rather than making the films available to groups For viewing, aren’t you making the videos of the films available for all via the library’s website That. makes much greater sense to me. Greater. distribution, NO damage to the print, no shipping costs or postal loss, No or minimal charge to the viewer, reduced labor cost, etc.

    • Thanks for writing. The purpose of the film loan program is to showcase the Library’s moving image collections – especially titles preserved by our film laboratory – through public screenings in venues around the world. Many of the films we loan are still under copyright, so venues have to clear the rights before we will book a loan.

      We encourage you to visit the National Screening Room, where we make films available online. Most of the titles are in the public domain and are freely downloadable in high resolution formats.
