Archival Screening Night Submissions

Posted on September 28, 2017

Greetings AMIA,

It’s that time of year again! Time to start programming the 2017 ARCHIVAL SCREENING NIGHT! 

Please consider submitting your best finds and preservation efforts to the 2017 edition of Archival Screening Night at this year’s AMIA Conference in New Orleans. The event will take place on Thursday, November 30th.

Everyone is invited and strongly encouraged to submit. Some priority will be given to first time applicants and works which speak to the region in which the conference is held. If you are showing material as part of any other screening or panel during the conference, we ask you not to submit that piece to Archival Screening Night. You are welcome to resubmit material that was submitted but not selected in past years. There is a limited total screening running time, so not all pieces submitted will be included in the program. Finally, technical resources for this year’s venue are not yet fully determined, so some programming selections may be made based on technical capacities.

GUIDING PHILOSOPHY:

AMIA Archival Screening Night provides members with an opportunity to showcase recent acquisitions, discoveries, and preservation efforts. The Archival Screening Night Group endeavors to create a program that represents the magnificent spectrum of formats, works, and collections protected and preserved by the AMIA community.

HOW TO SUBMIT

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at brittanclaire@gmail.com or becca@chicagofilmsociety.org.

All the best,

The Archival Screening Night Subcommittee
