MUMBAI: The Film Heritage Foundation saw major success with the second edition of Film Preservation and Restoration Workshop India 2016; a crucial initiative, given the urgent need to preserve India?s rich film legacy.

Viacom 18 was the principal sponsor of this 10 day workshop that was conducted by the Film Heritage Foundation in collaboration with the National Film Archive of India and International Federation of Film Archives, which was held at NFAI in Pune.

Actor Kamal Hassan was the guest of honour at the closing ceremony of the Film Preservation and Restoration Workshop 2016. The 10 day workshop had an international faculty of leading experts in the field who addressed current issues surrounding film preservation and restoration including practical training of current restoration and archival best practices. The initiative covered the preservation of both film and non-film material like posters, documents, lobby cards, photographs, etc. which are an integral part of our cinematic heritage.

Viacom 18 group CEO and chairman of CII National Committee on media and entertainment Sudhanshu Vats said, ?Preservation and Restoration of Indian cinematic heritage is an on-going priority for us. Our goal is to help create awareness as to how important it is to preserve our cultural heritage for the benefit of the future generations. We are thankful to Film Heritage Foundation for having us on board once again and we look forward for a continued association to ensure enhanced dialogue and cooperation between all those who care about and love Indian cinema?

Film Heritage Foundation founder director Shivendra Singh Dungarpur said,?It  has been a great year and with a second successful workshop behind us, we now have to start work on our mission to build an army of skilled film preservationists and restorers that is needed to save our moving image legacy. As always, we at Film heritage foundation cannot thank enough Sudhanshu Vats and his entire team at Viacom18 for their continued support for our cause and for understanding the importance of encouraging those who value India's rich cinematic legacy to learn, explore and contribute towards saving it for posterity.?

On this occasion the actor and chief guest  Kamal Hassan  said,?I am very pleased to be invited to be chief guest at the closing certification ceremony of the film preservation and restoration workshop in Pune and to present the FIAF certificates to the participants. A workshop of this kind is crucial for our country that has lost so much of our cinematic history and we need to grow a resource of passionate film archivists who are committed to saving our cinematic heritage. I would like to congratulate the Film Heritage Foundation for this remarkable initiative and for conducting the workshop at the National Film Archive of India.?
