Association of Moving Image Archivists: Video Contest

The Association of Moving Image Archivists’ first short film/video competition will highlight the importance of preserving our moving image heritage. Increasingly, our cultures are reflected through moving images – as news, entertainment, and historical artifact.  This year, AMIA celebrates its 20th anniversary as an association of people dedicated to preserving those moving images.  This competition will provide an opportunity to emphasize the importance of saving our moving images as important educational, historical, and cultural resources. It’s about originality, imagination and the ability to engage the audience in 180 seconds or less.

The competition is open to everyone — so share this information with friends, colleagues, students … anyone you know with an interest in preserving our moving image heritage.
