OFCS member Marilyn Ferdinand’s film preservation blogathon is a big success

OFCS member Marilyn Ferdinand reports:

For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon, held February 14-21, was a huge success. An international crew of 77 bloggers, including OFCS members Tim Brayton, Rob Gonsalves, Ed Howard, Robert Humanick, and Betty Jo Tucker, contributed a total of 108 posts to the fundraising effort hosted by OFCS member Marilyn Ferdinand and Farran Nehme (The Self-Styled Siren). When all the contributions were tallied, the blogathon raised $13,095 for the National Film Preservation Foundation. The funds will be used for a large, as-yet-unannounced project. The blogathoners chose to restore a silent comedy from 1925 as part of the project and will be mentioned as funders in the credits of the final restored film.

Congratulations to Ferdinand on her tremendous effort.
