There is no other place in the world like Bologna where films are treated as treasures of which we should take care. Where, thanks to sacrifice and commitment, old films recover their glitter and a wide loving audience. We would never imagine to present this work in a better place than Bologna, at Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards.

Il Cinema Ritrovato has always been an important platform to present archival film and discuss common problems of preservation and restoration.

So obviously Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards are a great opportunity to present the results of our work and maybe exploit a broader audience for it.

La mostra Bologna fotografata non racconta solo l’evoluzione urbanistica di una città e il susseguirsi delle vicende storiche in circa tre secoli, ma è l’occhio del fotografo il vero protagonista, fondamentale figura nota o anonima come nella locandina dell’esposizione, che dalla sua posizione privilegiata di osservatore, ritto sul basamento della fontana del Nettuno, si fa interprete dei cambiamenti del tessuto sociale e dell’assetto stradale.

We have been submitting our releases to Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards for many years. Milestone is a company — it's just my wife Amy Heller and me, to be specific — entirely devoted to the restoration and distribution of "lost" cinema: films that have been forgotten by audiences, critics, academics and sometimes even the archives themselves.

Flicker Alley has been a longtime supporter of the Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards, one of the few institutions that allows small publishers like us to showcase the hard work we do on an international stage. By honoring important yet obscure publications like The House of Mystery (La Maison du mystère), which won Best DVD in 2015, the Cineteca di Bologna goes a long way toward helping us accomplish our mission of bringing film history to new audiences.

We were inspired to submit to Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards the Blu-Ray/DVD of Private Property for many reasons. The film itself more than succeeds on its own merits, operating as both a tiny marvel of precision thriller storytelling and a scathing critique of the Eisenhower-era American Dream.

Ciné-Archives is in charge of the film archives of the French Communist Party and the labor movement. Our mission is to preserve and provide access to this moving image collection. The 3-DVD set La Vie est à nous, Le Temps des cerises et autres films du Front populaire is our first publication, which explains why we only submitted this one for Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards, hoping we have other DVDs to present in years to come!

Re:Voir Video has a strong commitment to distributing lesser known avant-garde filmmakers like Marcel Hanoun, and we believe that such niche films should appeal to an emerging specialised public. Il Cinema Ritrovato is a very important festival for releasing these titles, as it engages with a public interested in patrimonial cinema, but one that is eager to discover forgotten or unknown masterworks of underground cinema.
