The second in the NFPF's Treasures series, More Treasures was produced in collaboration with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, George Eastman House, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, and the UCLA Film & Television Archive. The set was funded in part through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Net proceeds support further film preservation. The box set covers the years from 1894 through 1931, when the motion pictures grew from a peepshow curio to the nation's fourth largest industry. This is the period from which fewest American films survive.
