Join us as we officially open AMIA's first virtual conference!  As we open the conference we are excited to present the 2020 Silver Light Award to Mona Jimenez, followed by a Keynote Conversation with Margaret Bodde, Executive Director of The Film Foundation. 

The Keynote is a conversation with Margaret Bodde, Executive Director of The Film Foundation since 1991, and Cecilia Cenciarelli, a director of the Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival in Bologna and in charge of research and special projects at the Cineteca di Bologna since 2000. The Film Foundation, celebrating its 30th anniversary, is dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history. By working in partnership with archives and studios, the foundation has helped to restore over 850 films, which are made accessible to the public through programming at festivals, museums, and educational institutions around the world. The Film Foundation's World Cinema Project has restored 42 films from 25 different countries representing the rich diversity of world cinema. The foundation's free educational curriculum, The Story of Movies, teaches young people - over 10 million to date - about film language and history. In 2017, the African Film Heritage Project was launched to identify, preserve and disseminate 50 significant African films, working in partnership with the Pan-African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI) and UNESCO. Margaret Bodde has also produced many of Scorsese’s documentary films, including Rolling Thunder Revue (2019), The 50 Year Argument (2014), George Harrison: Living in the Material World (2011), Public Speaking (2010), No Direction Home: Bob Dylan (2005), and the PBS series The Blues (2003). Prior to joining Scorsese, Bodde worked in marketing and distribution at Miramax Films and as a preservation officer at the Library of Congress.
