Research & development in film restoration

In collaboration with the University of Zurich and well-known industry and research partners we took part in the DIASTOR research project and thus continuously expanding our expertise in the growing domain of film restoration. In doing so, we relied on best practices and moreover developed new technologies to preserve old film material for posterity and make it accessible.

Saving, preserving and making old film material accessible, as well as long-term storage on film stock has become one of cinegrell’s core business activities and is of great concern. The restoration team lives film to the fullest and treats every project with the utmost care.
