Care of Collections

Preservation of national film heritage is NFA’s top priority. Since 1965 we preserved almost 24 million meters of nitrate film on safe stock. The cost of preserving unique film materials since 2005 exceeded 70 million CZK. The Digital laboratory, which takes care of digital works, was established in 2013.

The department of Special collections provides restoration care for written records and visual materials. We keep expanding the collections and we will gladly consider your proposals of any film-related materials. Producers of Czech films are obliged to offer their films for our collections, which is a measure that ensures that the national film heritage is preserved for future generations.
