  Abstract In this paper a novel restoration algorithm is presented for a special type of film artefacts resulting mainly from film emulsion melting and the vinegar syndrome. We have devised the algorithm based on the observation that the affected areas did not lose their contents entirely. Rather, one of the film layers still preserves some of the original image structure. This artefact behaviour is exploited for both identifying and restoring these artefacts. This work was funded by the EUs IST research and technological development programme. It is carried out within the Brava project (Broadcast Archives Restoration Through Video Analysis)
