Washington, D.C. (April 19, 2021) — The National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF) today announced the appointment of Scott Stuber, Head of Global Film at Netflix, to its Board of Directors. The four-year appointment is made by The Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden.

Mr. Stuber is the head of Netflix Films where he oversees the development, production and acquisition of the Netflix film slate. Recent releases include Academy Award nominees Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and The White Tiger. Previous films under Mr. Stuber’s supervision include: Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Academy Award winner Marriage Story, The Old Guard, Murder Mystery, Extraction, Bird Box, and three-time Academy Award winner ROMA, directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Prior to Netflix, he founded and ran Bluegrass Films, which produced such hits as Ted, Central Intelligence, and Safe House. A former vice chairman of worldwide production at Universal Studios, he was responsible for films including A Beautiful Mind, 8 Mile, Meet the Parents and its follow-up films, plus both the Bourne and Fast and the Furious franchises.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Scott Stuber to the Board of Directors of the NFPF,” said Grover Crisp, NFPF Board Chairman. “With his support and advice, the Foundation will continue its core mission to preserve a wide diversity of American films from across the nation and make them available for study, research and exhibition. Without the commitment of individuals like Mr. Stuber, this would not be possible.”

In accepting the appointment, Mr. Stuber remarked, “Film heritage and preservation is vital to our industry. I look forward to contributing to the incredible work the NFPF is committed to and am honored to join the board.”

Mr. Stuber will join fellow board members Grover Crisp (Chair), Eric J. Schwartz (Vice Chair), Cecilia deMille Presley, Zooey Deschanel, Robert G. Rehme, Leonard Maltin, Scott M. Martin, Martin Scorsese, John Ptak, Alfre Woodard, Larry Karaszewski and Dr. Carla Hayden (ex officio).

The National Film Preservation Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving America's film heritage. Created by the U.S. Congress, the NFPF is the charitable affiliate of the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress. Since 1998, the NFPF has provided preservation resources to 315 organizations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
