EU Commission Report Finds a Million Hours of Film Archives Locked Away and Pushes For Digitization

The EU Commission is encouraging film fans to push their governments to open up and digitize their heritage so that it can be shared with future generations.

According to a new report released by the EU Commission, most European film heritage institutions are not digitizing the material they have.

The report emphasises the importance of putting films into digital formats so that they are not lost, illustrating its point with the silent film era, from which only 10% of movies have survived. (Culture)

I think its a good idea to an extent. You don't need to put EVERY film on digital... you just need the ones that show a good idea of what the era was about. Like today. Would you want films like Transformers 3 showing the art of the era, or The Avengers?
