For the Love of Film (Noir) - Feb 14-21, 2011

The Film Preservation Blogathon - For the Love of Film (Noir) will run the week of February 14 through February 21, 2011. It's not too early to make a donation while you wait for all the good stuff that will be posted during the week of the blogathon.

Please do your bit and donate $5, $10, $15 or $20 to support the Film Noir Foundation. Even in these economically challenging times a few dimes will save something we can't easily replace. We can't save every single precious frame of film noir, but we can try. I'm a glass half full person, please help!

Your donation to the Film Noir Foundation can be made at any dollar amount when you hit the paypal link on their site or you can become a rod carrying member at the following levels:
