The National Film Preservation Foundation is excited to announce that Scott Stuber, Head of Global Film at Netflix, has been appointed to the NFPF Board of Directors.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Scott Stuber to the Board of Directors of the NFPF,” says Board Chair Grover Crisp. “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.”
As head of Netflix Films, Scott Stuber supervises the development, production and acquisition of the Netflix film slate, whose 2020-21 triumphs include Academy Award nominees Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and The White Tiger. Earlier films overseen by Mr. Stuber include Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Academy Award winners Marriage Story and ROMA. Before joining Netflix Mr. Stuber founded and ran Bluegrass Films (producer of the hits Ted, Central Intelligence, and Safe House) and was vice chairman of worldwide production at Universal Studios. There he was responsible for A Beautiful Mind, 8 Mile, Meet the Parents, the Fast and the Furious franchise and much more.
Mr. Stuber says “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.” He was appointed to the board by the Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden.
