George Feltenstein

George Feltenstein has been involved in the marketing and restoration of classic films for many years, initially bringing them to repertory and revival theaters. Afterward, he joined MGM/UA Home Video to bring the classic MGM film library to videocassettes and laserdiscs, eventually becoming the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the division. While at MGM/UA, he was also the executive in charge of production of the theatrical release That’s Entertainment! III in 1994. He joined Time Warner in 1997 to lead initiatives involving the company’s classic film and television library. He soon produced over 100 expanded and restored soundtrack CDs as part of a joint venture with Rhino Records, provided guidance to Warner Home Video on the release of special edition DVDs, and initiated productions of documentary films drawn primarily from the company’s holdings. Included among these productions were Gene Kelly: Anatomy of a Dancer (2002), Stardust: The Bette Davis Story (2006), Joan Crawford: The Ultimate Movie Star (2002), and Judy Garland: By Myself (2004), which earned him an Emmy Award in 2004. In 2002, he formally joined Warner Home Video as Senior Vice President of Theatrical Catalog Marketing. This later led to his involvement in the development of the Warner Archive Collection (WAC), a specialty label the studio launched in 2009. Since that time WAC has released more than 4000 films and TV shows on DVD and Blu-ray. Feltenstein continues to be integrally involved with Warner Archive’s ongoing efforts, as part of his role as Warner Bros. Discovery Library Historian. Within his expanded position, he is enabled to work integrally with many divisions across the company. In 2005, the National Board of Review presented him with the William K. Everson Award for his ongoing contribution to film preservation.
