Now Showing: September 2014


TAMI is hitting the road this September to take our award-winning Texas Film Round-Up to Brownsville! We are excited to partner with Humanities Texas to participate in the Brownsville History Harvest on September 27. We will be at the Brownsville Public Library Main Branch at 2600 Central Boulevard from 10 am – 3 pm accepting your Texas-related films and videos for our free digitization program. We will also be showing a curated reel of historic area footage throughout the day. If you cannot make it out to the History Harvest, you can drop off your films and videos at the library through October 4. Find more details here, and don’t miss this opportunity to preserve your Texas history!

TAMI will be at the Flow Conference on the University of Texas campus this month!  TAMI Executive Director Caroline Frick will moderate a panel titled "Television Restoration: Pragmatic Realities and Implications for Media History" from 3:15-4:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 12, and TAMI will present archival footage from our collection before the FLOW featured screening that night. Hosted by the graduate students and faculty of the Radio-Television-Film department at the University of Texas at Austin, the conference will be held September 11 – 13 at the Blanton Museum of Art. FLOW presents conversation about the changing landscape of television with scholars, industry professionals, media activists, and policy makers. The public is invited to join some of the biggest names in the TV industry as they share their thoughts about where television has been and where it might be going. Registration is free for UT Austin faculty, students and staff. For non-UT Austin attendees, panel passes are available for $15. Come join the discussion!

Austin Museum Day is Sunday, September 21, 2014. Austin Museum Day is a free, city-wide rediscovery of Austin museums held annually in the month of September.  It provides the public with free access to exhibits and activities, representing more than 35 Austin cultural institutions! This year, TAMI is teaming up with the Texas Capitol Visitors Center to screen historic Capitol footage on the Capitol grounds. Come out to celebrate all that Austin's area museums have to offer at no charge! Parking is available at the Capitol Visitors Parking Garage at 1201 San Jacinto.
