The Film Heritage Awards were presented for the restorations of classical work of artists in field of film and music:

  1. To Ron Magliozzi, associate curator, and Peter Williamson, film conservation manager, of the Museum of Modern Art, for identifying and assembling the earliest surviving footage of what would have been the feature film to star a black cast, the 1913 Lime Kiln Field Day starring Bert Williams.
  2. To Ron Hutchison, co-founder and director of The Vitaphone Project, which since 1991 has collected and restored countless original soundtrack discs for early sound short films and features, including the recent Warner Bros. restoration of William A. Seiter's 1929 Why Be Good?


As per tradition, ceremony was dedicated to the memory of two distinguished members of the Society who died in the previous year; in 2014 the honorees were Jay Carr and Charles Champlin.
