The Film Archive and Cinematic Heritage chair invites papers and panels that explore the meanings of the film archive—both past and present. Possible topics include film preservation/restoration, film collecting, digital archiving, archival exhibition and film festivals, as well as other practices related to the creation and maintenance of cinematic heritage not directly associated with the archive. Papers, panels, and presentations focusing on the southwest are especially welcome. Scholars, filmmakers, archivists, film curators, and students are encouraged to submit an abstract.
Come to the sunny southwest in February!
