San Francisco Bay Area cinephiles can enjoy an ongoing series of film festivals throughout the year showcasing a variety of themes (animation, film noir, LGBT, silent film) that supplement mainstream commercial productions. Latino movies are no exception.

The Stanford University Archives is pleased to announce the availability of 19 audiorecordings from the Russell and Sigurd Varian Papers. This digitization is a result of our most recent round of collaboration with the California Audiovisual Preservation Project (CAVPP). The CAVPP assists repositories by coordinating and funding digitization of materials deemed to be of “statewide significance” and at risk of loss due to physical condition and format obsolescence.
