The Orphan Film Symposium

This week the 10th Orphan Film Symposium kicks off at the Library of Congress’s Packard Campus for Audio-Visual Conservation. Convened by New York University, this edition of the Symposium focuses on recorded sound and will be attended by archivists, preservationists, technicians, and scholars from around the world.

The symposium’s schedule includes a lecture from Rick Prelinger, author of the NFPF’s Field Guide to Sponsored Films, on film preservation issues of the 21st century and a presentation by film restorers Robert Gitt and Robert Heiber on “A Century of Sound.” There will also be screenings of films including Count Us In (1948), a presidential campaign short for the Progressive Party’s Henry Wallace, and Little Orphant Annie (1918), one of Collen Moore’s first starring roles, to be presented along with a 1912 audio recording of the eponymous James Whitcomb Riley poem it was based on.
