FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE					January 11, 2006

Free Screenings of 78th Academy AwardŽ Nominees at the National Archives
Highlighting Four Categories March 1-5, 2006

Washington, D.C.  . . . The National Archives will host the second annual free screenings of Academy AwardŽ nominees in four categories, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, Live Action Short Film, and Animated Short Film at the William G. McGowan Theater from Wednesday, March 1, through Sunday, March 5, 2006.  

The screenings are presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in partnership with the Charles Guggenheim Center for the Documentary Film at the National Archives, and the Foundation for the National Archives. "It is an honor for my family to be associated with these two distinguished institutions, a symbolic collaboration and metaphor of my father's career and life's commitment," said Grace Guggenheim, President of Guggenheim Productions, Inc.  "50 years ago he received his first Academy AwardŽ Nomination for A City Decides, a documentary on the events that lead to the integration of the St. Louis public schools."

One of only two public East Coast screenings, the films will be introduced by distinguished members of the documentary film community including Grace Guggenheim, President of Guggenheim Productions, Inc.; Paul Wagner, OscarŽ-winning filmmaker (The Stone Carvers,1984); Flo Stone, Artistic Director and Founder of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital; Nina Gilden Seavey, Director of the Documentary Center at George Washington University; Peggy Parsons, Curator of the Department of Film Programs at the National Gallery of Art; Patricia Finneran, Director of AFI SilverDocs; and David Petersen, OscarŽ- nominated filmmaker (Fine Food, Fine Pastries, Open 6 to 9, 1989). 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will announce the nominees for each category on January 31, 2006.  Following the announcement, the National Archives will post the exact schedule for the showing of each film. Reservations are not required. Seating will be on a first-come/first-serve basis. For up-to-date information, please check the National Archives web site listing at www.archives.gov or call the Public Events line at (202) 357-5000. 

The William G. McGowan Theater is located in the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C. Metro accessible on Yellow or Green lines, Archives/Navy Memorial station.  The public should use the Special Event entrance on Constitution Avenue and 7th Street, NW. 

The Charles Guggenheim Center for the Documentary Film at the National Archives was established in 2004 in honor of four-time OscarŽ- winner and past president of the Foundation for the National Archives Charles Guggenheim. The Center's mission is to advance public understanding of the process, challenges, and social impact of documentary filmmaking and to promote the education of young people and professionals. The Center is both a living legacy of an internationally acclaimed producer and director and an extension of America's premier resource for documentary film research.

The Foundation for the National Archives
The Foundation for the National Archives is a non-profit organization committed to creating public awareness of the importance of the National Archives as a vital resource in the American democracy.  The Foundation was created in 1992 to support the Archivist of the United States in developing programs, technology, projects, and materials that introduce and interpret the Archives' collection for the American people and for people around the world.  The National Archives Experience is made possible by a public/private partnership between the National Archives and Records Administration and the Foundation for the National Archives, which is working as the private sector partner to support the creation of these new exhibitions and educational programs and resources. The Foundation is generating financial and creative support from individuals and corporations to provide this extensive outreach, which has not been mandated by Congress.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a professional honorary organization of over 6,000 motion picture professionals, was founded to advance the arts and sciences of motion pictures; foster cooperation among creative leaders for cultural, educational and technological progress; recognize outstanding achievements; cooperate on technical research and improvement of methods and equipment; provide a common forum and meeting ground for various branches and crafts; represent the viewpoint of actual creators of the motion picture; and foster educational activities between the professional community and the public-at-large.
