The partnership brings together a preeminent museum for modern art, a global leader in digital VFX, and the world’s most comprehensive single-artist museum. 

The project will once again make accessible approximately 500 titles that Warhol made between 1963 and 1972, then withdrew from circulation more than 40 years ago.

MPC will provide the scanning and artistic restoration to create new digital masters that retain all of the films' original character

Nearly 1,000 rolls of original 16mm film will be digitally scanned, frame by frame, and converted into high resolution (2K) images.

The process begins this month and will take several years to complete as the process of scanning is delicate. However once completely digitised the entire collection of Warhol films will be available for public screening.
