Anne and Nancy are headed down to Austin, Texas this week for the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) annual conference, and can do this only because of the support from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation. THANK YOU!
The annual AMIA conference provides an opportunity for colleagues and those interested in the field of audiovisual preservation to meet, share information, attend screenings and work together.
Margaret Conneely’s film FAIRY PRINCESS will also be making an appearance in Austin at the Saturday afternoon screening of AMATEUR NIGHT: HOME MOVIES FROM AMERICAN ARCHIVES. AMATEUR NIGHT, which was produced by the Center for Home Movies in 2010, spotlights a selection of amazing amateur films from across the country – including our very own, FAIRY PRINCESS from 1956 (to learn more about FAIRY PRINCESS and the preservation work behind it, visit our preservation page) .
CFA is also bringing one of our new favorite films along with us to compete in the second annual “Reels of Steel” Competition at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse. For some suspense, we’ll leave the film a surprise a now . . . .
