Adrian Wood has been a Supporter of FIAF (initially as a "Donor") since 2006.

He has worked with archival material for over 40 years either in the context of documentary production for broadcast and theatrical purposes or in the restoration of motion picture films. This work involves the identification of material, the understanding of associated rights to material, the acquisition of material and the assessment of collections. This work has ranged across all film, video and digital formats from the 1890s until today.

Restorations supervised by him, both digital and analog, of work by directors such as Fanck, Riefenstahl, Ichikawa, Marcellini and Shinoda, have screened at festivals such as Cannes, Venice, Tokyo and Moscow, as well as at cinematheques around the world.

While retaining a deep commitment to the supervision of restorations he continues to develop productions led by archival content. His commitment to research and the discovery of forgotten content has led to him being honoured with several prestigious awards both in the UK and the US, where he is currently based.

His mantra for many years has been and remains «it is not that something is lost or no longer exists, we simply need to continue the search until we find it».
