History Shall Not Be Lost
A Profile on the Outfest Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation
Somewhere not so far away, very quietly and unnoticed to the masses, history is disappearing. It’s fading away to tragic consequences because without knowledge of the past, we continue to head blindly into the future. Yes, we will always have classic books, paintings, photographs and pieces of music serving as historical bookends, but for a lot of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender filmmakers over the last century, their works of art have already been lost for good. But thanks to the pioneering Outfest Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation, all hasn’t been lost yet.
