Hi Scott,

I appreciate that if it's the case, but I had yet to see it myself.  The Gartenberg/Light Cone press release, the program notes at earlymonthlysegments.org, none of these mentioned it, which is what I was going on.  I see that they're now at earlymonthlysegments, which I really appreciate.

I figured anyone doing the tour wouldn't know about the Academy's connection, since it isn't mentioned anywhere in the tour promo material.  For this, I totally don't blame the folks actually showing the films in their respective venues.

Mark

Hi Mark (and all)--
Thanks for your note and for flagging the Academy's amazing work,
it is indeed mentioned in our promo materials: press release, website and all materials
related to our screenings here in Toronto.
All best,
Scott

Though it's great these films are showing again, it's too bad that it's mentioned nowhere that the extensive preservation/restoration work done to make them available was performed by the Academy Film Archive in Los Angeles.

I didn't work on them myself - this project pre-dated my time at the archive by a bit.  But my colleagues here did a huge amount of work on these films, and I'd like to ask anyone who's showing these prints to consider thanking the Academy Film Archive in their own promotional materials, if they're so inclined.

Hi Frameworks,
Scott at the Images Festival in Toronto writing to let you know about a very special tour:
the complete works of Warren Sonbert being undertaken by Light Cone in Paris.

The monthly screening salon I work on here in Toronto with Kate MacKay and Chris Kennedy,
"Early Monthly Segments", is kicking off the tour next month and we're doing some friendly
outreach in the hopes that the films will circulate far and wide.

Series organizer Jon Gartenberg (www.gartenbergmedia.com/about.html) is available to
speak along with the films. He's an incredible fountain of knowledge as an archivist,
distributor and programmer.

Here is Light Cone's page where you can read about each of the 7 programs:

Warm regards,
Scott
