Moving Image gets grant

AMPAS hands $50,000 to Archivists Assn.

For the third consecutive year, the Assn. of Moving Image Archivists has received a $50,000 grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

The association was established in 1991 to foster cooperation among individuals concerned with collection, preservation and exhibition of movies.

“We believe that this support of AMIA is a great way to increase the Academy’s impact on preservation and restoration of motion pictures,” Academy president Robert Rehme said. “With this grant, we can help AMIA provide the kind of grass-roots service to its members that it’s becoming famous for.”

The Academy also provides office space at its Beverly Hills headquarters for AMIA’s administrative coordinator, Janice Simpson.

“It is due to the Academy’s generosity that AMIA is able to provide services to members and to the archival moving image field, and we are extremely grateful for the Academy’s renewed support,” said AMIA president Linda Tadic of the Peabody Award Archive in Athens, Ga.

AMIA, which represents some 500 archivists in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries, organizes an annual archival conference — the next one is next year in Los Angeles — conducts training workshops, disseminates information about the archive field and develops and promotes standards in the areas of moving image preservation, cataloguing and access.
