The definitive place and person to ask about film preservation is Jonas
Mekas at Anthology Film Archives in New York City, or Robert Haller, the
director. This is exactly what they do--preserve films. You can find the
phone number in 1-212-555-1212 information.

They have grant money to restore films. They may be able to restore it for
you and can definitely tell you what to do with it.
