The Association of Moving image Archivists, AMIA will be holding its annual conference in Pittsburg. Nancy McDonald and Carolyn Faber (head of Kartemquin Archives project) will be conducting a panel together with Sarah Chapman from Media Burn Archives on Saturday, November 12.

Throughout 2015 and 2016, Media Burn Archives collaborated with Kartemquin Films to create the first public access to collections of camera-original footage from KTQ’s archive. More than 200 unreleased video tapes in will be available for free public viewing on by the end of 2016. It will be the first time any footage from KTQ’s 50-year archive of 18,000 items related to documentary productions will be made available to the public in any form. The panelists will discuss the rationale for prioritizing the preservation of camera-original footage and ways to engage the public with the digital access, the risk factors specific to the long-term survival of independently produced work from the videotape era, the complexities of creating and sustaining a formal archive at an active production company, as well as how to frame a mutually beneficial structure for an archive to create access to a collection held by an outside organization.
