The Texas Film Round-Up Comes to Fort Worth!


The Texas Archive of the Moving Image is excited to bring the award-winning Texas Film Round-Up to Fort Worth! Beginning Friday, October 2, TAMI will host the Texas Film Round-Up at the Ft. Worth Central Library at 500 W. Third Street (at the intersection of 3rd and Lamar). The Round-Up will run from October 2 - 4, Friday and Saturday from 10 am - 6 pm and Sunday from 1 pm - 5 pm TAMI staff will be on-site to collect films and videos from the public, and an exhibition on film history and preservation will be on display for public viewing as well as a reel of Forth Worth area footage. A special presentation, co-sponsored by Ft. Worth Library and TCU's Center for Texas Studies, will be given by TAMI’s Managing Director, Madeline Moya, on Saturday at 10:30 am in Tandy Lecture Hall as part of the Center's Community History Workshop series. Moya will discuss film preservation, TAMI's work in rescuing Texas films and videos, and screen archival films. 

Through a partnership with the Texas Film Commission, the Texas Film Round-Up provides free digitization for Texas films and videotapes, including home movies, industrial films, educational films, advertisements, local television, and more in an effort to preserve Texas media heritage. To qualify for free digitization, films must be Texas related, and participants must be willing to donate a digital copy of their materials to TAMI’s archive. TAMI urges potential donors to dig their films and videotapes out of their attics, sheds, or garages and bring them to the Texas Film Round-Up for free digitization. 

We hope to see you in Fort Worth!
