Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil'

The Academy announces the first ever Film-to-Film Festival, an event to celebrate its preservation efforts through Project Film-to-Film. The first edition will run September 27-29 at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn and Linwood Dunn theaters. Project Film-to-Film launched a year ago with the intention of preserving as many films as possible over a two-year period, taking advantage of the currently available film stock to create new prints. Now over 390 films have been preserved.

The schedule for the Film-to-Film Festival is below. Ticketing information is available here.

Writer-director Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” is set in an alternative reality “somewhere in the 20th century,” where civil servant Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) fights a hopeless battle against a totalitarian state. The film earned Academy Award® nominations for Original Screenplay (Gilliam, Tom Stoppard, Charles McKeown) and Art Direction (Art Direction: Norman Garwood; Set Decoration: Maggie Gray). The stellar supporting cast includes Helmond, Jim Broadbent, Robert De Niro, Ian Holm, Bob Hoskins, Charles McKeown and Michael Palin.
