Laurence Kardish, former Senior Curator of Film at The Museum of Modern Art, organized over a thousand film and moving-image exhibitions during his 44 year career at MoMA, borrowing materials from FIAF members for many of these retrospectives and surveys. As a board member of the Fassbinder Foundation, USA, a consultant for the Cohen Media Group’s Quad Cinema, a founder of SaveFilm.org, and a teacher at New York’s School of Visual Arts Kardish brings an appreciation of and enthusiasm for the critical work done by FIAF members to his current activities. He is also the co-artistic director of Film Columbia, a festival in upstate New York which includes recently restored films, and is working on a book about Shirley Clarke, a text which would not have been possible without the preservation of Clarke’s films and digital works.

In 2017 he did consultancy work for the Rainer Werner Fassbinder Foundation in regard to the establishment of a Fassbinder Research Center at the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt. He is also a curatorial consultant for an  exhibition about American Cinema to take place at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow scheduled for 2019. As Artistic Director of the FilmColumbia festival in Chatham, New York, he screened Heiner Carow's recently restored DEFA feature, Die Russen Kommen (The Russians are Coming,) shot in 1968 and edited in 1987.
