Providing a Cold Storage Unit for Preserving the Pacific Film Archive

An implementation project for the purchase and construction of a cold storage unit housing selected portions of the Pacific Film Archive, a collection of over 16,000 films focusing primarily on the cinematic history of the Pacific Rim.

The Pacific Film Archive (PFA) requests a grant in the amount of $350,000 to purchase and install a walk-in cold storage vault at its collection storage facility. The vault will house unique and vulnerable motion picture negatives and earliest generation printing elements—our most important holdings and those in the greatest danger of deterioration. Moving these carefully chosen selections from the PFA collection into a cold storage room constitutes a significant, urgent improvement that adheres to the best practices in the field and will ensure future, public access to this important heritage.
