Looks like they are premiering the latest World Cinema Project film (and therefore likely Criterion title), El fantasma del convento (1934) by Fernando de Fuentes.

Die Liebe der Jeanne Ney (1927) has been restored by the Murnau Stiftung, using a print at MoMa, taken from the B-negative:

The Stiftung´s excellent site:
http://www.murnau-stiftung.de/news

Writing "Veit Harlan" in the Search box gets you info about restos of Opfergang, Immensee and Die Goldene Stadt. Site also has info about the 1943 Münchhausen film resto, plus many other titles.
Excellent research material. Several films, like Opfergang, are out on German Blurays. Haven´t seen any of them, so can´t vouch for subs.
