Christopher Nolan Joins Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation

Christopher Nolan Joins Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation

Director Christopher Nolan has come aboard Martin Scorsese’s film preservation nonprofit Film Foundation, which has resurrected classics since 1990 including Powell and Pressburger’s “Tales of Hoffmann” earlier this year.

He joins a top-drawer coterie of members that already includes Woody Allen, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Francis Ford Coppola, Clint Eastwood, Curtis Hanson, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, George Lucas, Alexander Payne, Robert Redford and Steven Spielberg.

Nolan, like Scorsese, has long been outspoken and passionate about celluloid, and prefers to shoot his movies on film. At a recent Getty Museum summit, as reported by Variety, Christopher Nolan made a rallying cry to save the medium: “There’s a reason filmmakers get very excited about shooting film and seeing film prints, and we have to communicate that to audiences around the world.”
