Presented by the Association of Moving Image Archivists and co-sponsored by Video Round Table, this panel will discuss organizations acting as both archives and distributors of moving image materials. Wood will focus on Kino Lorber’s restoration process for the “Pioneers of African-American Cinema” project. Bonfanti will speak on preserving the medium of motion picture film exhibition and her work at Canyon Cinema. Chapman will offer a less traditional model of distribution with Chicago-based Media Burn Archive. Attendees will learn about the challenges for media content providers that are also caretakers of their holdings; the difference between preservation and restoration of moving images; and the importance of preserving motion picture film and the projection experience.
