Adrian Wood has been a supporter of FIAF since 2008. He has worked with archival material for over 45 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, and 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 in Cannes, Venice, Tokyo, and Moscow, as well as at cinematheques around the world. His concept to promote restoration in Asia through “Restoration Asia” continues.

While retaining a deep commitment to the supervision of restorations, he continues to develop productions driven by archival content or cinema’s history. His commitment to research and the discovery of forgotten content has led to him being honoured with several prestigious international awards for both production and restoration in the UK, the US and Asia.

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