SFSMA wins a GRAMMY Preservation Grant

The GRAMMY Foundation® Grant Program has awarded the Silent Film Sound and Music Archive a 2016 Preservation Implementation grant.

The Silent Film Sound and Music Archive will digitize the Silent Cinema Presentations, Inc. Collection managed by Ben Model, an important private collection of silent film music, and make it freely accessible through an online repository of silent film music. The collection contains rare volumes of music from Europe and America, all of which offers insight into the composition and performance of music for silent films.

We at SFSMA are grateful to the GRAMMY Foundation for its support and are looking forward to getting the project underway.
