David Shepard at the 2010 Governors Awards

It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the passing of David Shepard: A dear friend, mentor, loyal colleague, and guiding force behind so many of our projects and publications. David’s passion for film heritage was an inspiration to Flicker Alley from the very start, and remains so as we continue to work on the films he loved and saved.  Never one to take credit for his incredible accomplishments, his memory will nonetheless live on, in the films he worked tirelessly to save, restore and make available for future generations, and in the hearts of those he touched along the way.

We express our condolences to his family and friends, to his six loving dogs, and to the film community at large.  David will be sincerely missed by all.
