Speaking of Japanese classics, SIFF will also screen Yôji Yamada's Am I Trying and Tora-san's Love Call (the first and eighth installments of the famous Tora-san series) in 4K restorations. According to the press material, all 49 Tora-san films have been digitized and restored by Shochiku in the past two years.
That's good news, since AnimEigo's US DVD set only ever reached one volume, containing the first four Tora-san films.

Deccan Chronicle has an interesting article about the preservation of Indian cinema.

I've seen by sheer chance a few frames of the restoration. It looked beautiful.
