The Film Advocacy Task Force of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) supports theaters choosing to sustain film projection alongside digital cinema by connecting them with experts and resources. Project Film is an educational film series that will address the needs of film exhibitors as they navigate digital convergence, with practical information on securing prints and maintaining equipment. We’re in the pre-production phase and would love to hear from you- your responses to this short survey will help guide Project Film!
Give film a chance! Take the survey today!
If you’re interested in becoming involved, contact the Task Force at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are an AMIA project, so if you are not already an AMIA member consider joining! For more information about how you can join, visit us here. The Association is for anyone concerned with our film and audiovisual heritage
If you show film – in a theatre, in a classroom, at your institution – we want to hear from you!
The Task Force wants to know what you show and how you show it! We think film is important and the experience of seeing film is one that shouldn’t be lost. When DCP started to noticeably push traditional film projection from the screens of our local theatres and museums, at the dawn of the 21st century, motion picture film, the 20th century’s standard for the presentation of motion pictures, is threatened with marginalization.
The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) is a nonprofit international association dedicated to the preservation and use of moving image media. AMIA supports public and professional education and fosters cooperation and communication among the individuals and organizations concerned with the acquisition, preservation, description, exhibition, and use of moving image materials.
AMIA’s members range from those who work solely with moving images to organizations where moving images are only a small part of their collection to individuals who want to protect their personal collection – home movies or small gauge or video – to film buffs concerned with losing our visual heritage.
