Save the Early Films of Christine Vachon And Todd Haynes

Author’s Note: Originally posted July 9, 2016, but I wanted this important campaign back at the very top of MOTR, so I posted it again. The campaign was a success, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important to still know about this important need to save these films and many more that we are losing. Let’s help save these films and help IndieCollect continue to make this happen. These films are so important to the LGBT generations of today and the future LGBT generations yet to come. Hell, they are important for us older LGBT generations too. I know these films saved me (and still do) on my sad and lonely, oh God, please, why am I a lesbian days.

Many important American indie films are in peril or stuck on the shelf because they haven’t made the leap into the digital age.

IndieCollect will scan these unseen gems and make them available in a hi-res digital format for the first time.

IndieCollect unearthed the master elements for eight daring, inventive and witty shorts produced by Christine Vachon and Todd Haynes in the 1980s and 1990s under their Apparatus banner.

Using its brand new 5k Kinetta film scanner, IndieCollect will make these long-unseen films available to Kickstarter backers.

See how the wonderful filmmakers behind CAROL, I’M NOT THERE, FAR FROM HEAVEN, BOYS DON’T CRY, SAFE and SUPERSTAR got their start.

Help IndieCollect scan vital works.

IndieCollect has until July 27 to meet their goal.

And I guess we did support them because as of July 27, 2016, the campaign was a success!
Please still visit IndieCollect for more info.
I love these guys for preserving these still very much needed films. 🙂
