Join us at Beyer Blinder Belle to kick off the Archive Project’s third annual Preservation Film Festival! Meet some of the filmmakers and panelists participating in the festival, mingle with other preservation film lovers, and listen to the music of violin prodigy Pilar Hill.

The evening will also feature a screening of the short film STONEFACED (2012), which takes us along as noted architect, professor, author, and photographer Robert Arthur King, FAIA captures hidden urban gems with his camera and his heart. The New York Times has called King an “urban safari hunter of Stone Faces.” King, who was a lifelong Harlem resident until recently, has developed a secret and comic relationship with them.

Director Vivian Ducat is a BBC-trained documentary filmmaker who has produced films for BBC, PBS and other broadcast entities as well as for museum exhibitions. She is a recipient of the 2016 Six to Celebrate Award from the Historic Districts Council as part of the successful effort to expand the Audubon Park Historic District. Both Robert A.
