All films produced or distributed on nitrate stock are now over fifty years old. Unless already transferred to safety stock, all this footage from the early days of cinema is decaying with growing speed. Quite a lot of it may be beyond repair before the current decade is over.

At the same time, colourfading is starting to affect early colourstock, while the vinegar syndrome is proving extremely destructive for most footage on acetate stock that isn't even fifty years old.

For film libraries and film archives pressure is growing fast to put adequate effort in saving their priceless collections.

And because early footage is getting more and more in demand for the use in newer media, film conservation and restoration is becoming top priority.

From the very start of HAGHEFILM as a dedicated service for film conservation and restoration, all staff has been very much aware of the upcoming problems with both nitrate and acetate footage. Over the years, expertise and the latest equipment has been matched at HAGHEFILM for the sole purpose of safeguarding the film heritage.

This expertise and experience keeps been called upon by numerous prestigious international film institutes and by many famous film historians.
