Acquisition collection Scopitones US 16mm pour les Projectivers

<h2><strong>An amazing collection of original 60&#39;s musical films called Scopitones ! </strong></h2> <h2>Born in Lyon, then moved to Pau (Pyr&eacute;n&eacute;es Atlantiques), Les Projectivers brings to life the cinema of yesteryear by collecting cinematographic remains from all eras for more than 20 years. An impressive collection of US scopitones is for sale and can be rescued from a warehouse in Kansas and the association would like to acquire for screening at festivals and events in France and Europe. These scopitones were recovered from machines bought by the great director Francis Ford Coppola who had installed 40 of them in the Chicago area in the 60s. Recovered by the mafia, these machines have been training since in a warehouse and the films which are about it&nbsp;extracts are real rarities in near new condition!</h2> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <h3><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></h3> <h3><strong>Who are The Projectivers</strong></h3> <p>The Projectivers don&#39;t like&nbsp;numeric, video, MP3 and Dvix ! We enjoy super 8, 9,5mm, 16 and 35mm and all the machine for this ! We collect all in celluloid and find some rarities &amp; movies everywhere it is possible : science fiction, westerns, scopitones, TV serial, horror &amp; fantastic, musical movies, burlesque, cartoons, slapstick, erotic and sexy, strange things... and we do party with it. We bring our material everywhere and show these strange films with rock&#39;n&#39;roll band and rocking DJ set. And you know what? It&#39;s fantastic : black and white, colors and old 3D from 50&#39;s... with several projection at the same time. We love to hear to the noise of our projector !&nbsp;We went in international spot to screen our movies&nbsp;: Mexico, Espagne, France... in famous festivals : Funtastic Dracula Carnival, Montesquiou On The Rock&#39;s, Euroy&eacute;y&eacute;, Action Week End, Vicious Soul Festival...&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <h3><strong>An exceptional offer from the USA ! </strong></h3> <h3>We have discovered that there is a collection of 150 original American scopitone films (in Kansas) and we wish to acquire this collection for future events. COVID canceled many events that allowed us to raise the funds necessary for this purchase. Thus, we involve the public, friends, fans of the 60&#39;s, music lovers, music lovers and rockers, to allow us to receive and screen these films to the european public<strong>.</strong></h3> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <h3><strong>Your mission, if you accept it !</strong></h3> <h3>A few euros, or more, can help us acquire this collection which will not be able to remain on sale for long. We are soliciting individuals, film lovers, vintage culture, 60&#39;s events to purchase this impressive collection. You will of course be invited to our next events and we can also send you, on request, a small piece of 16mm scopitones film, which you can keep in memory of this beneficial act for our association.Thank you so much !!&nbsp;</h3> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<h3><strong>The cost of the project ...</strong></h3> <h3>The purchase cost is 1700 euros (purchase of a batch of 150 scopitones + shipping from Kansas (USA) + bank charges etc ...). We are asking for 2000 because we need to provide for the restoration of certain scopitones (glue, gluer, viewing, projection lamp) and their transport to France (including delivery insurance). If successful, Projectivers must also reverse 8% of donations to KissKissBankBank. Thank you for your essential support! Thanks to you, 150 scopitones will leave their warehouse for a second life in technicolor</h3> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>
