    Among the most outstanding actresses of our time, Catherine Deneuve was appointed UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the Safeguarding of Film Heritage in 1994. She is strongly committed to the safeguarding and restoration of precious film heritage in developing countries and has launched an international call for the preservation of such material under the title "21st Century Memory".

    She has extended unequivocal support to UNESCO efforts to promote freedom of speech and has chaired the "Year of Cinema" programme in 1995. She has been a determined advocate for increasing the funds given to the Belgian Royal Cinematheque, a gem of European and world film heritage.
