Cineric Portugal is a collaboration between  Cineric Inc. based in New York and The Cinemateca Portuguesa based in Lisbon. At ANIM, the archive portion of the Cinemateca, there has been a full photochemical restoration laboratory since 1998 working for a number of archives around Europe and South America as well as preserving their internal work. The culture of archival film handling and lab work provided a perfect match with Cineric´s who has be providing the same services in the states since 1982 and when Cineric was looking for a base to offer digital services in Europe, the advantages were obvious of having an already trained staff ready to inspect, prepare and scan materials as well as the possibilities to combine the best elements of analog and digital restoration as needed and a facility build to handle nitrate film.
