Join the University of North Texas Libraries and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image for the unique opportunity to become part of North Texas film history while also preserving your family’s photographs, home movies, and more. From ticket stubs and theater advertisements to home movies of local parades and festivals, this free community event will help to preserve the City of Dallas’ extensive but disappearing film heritage.
Bring your home movies and materials related to Dallas motion picture history to Top Ten Records (338 W. Jefferson Blvd) from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, May 19th. Trained librarians and archivists from UNT Libraries will scan your print materials onsite and immediately return the originals along with a free digital copy. The Texas Archive of the Moving Image will inspect and collect your film and videos, which will be digitized off-site and returned by mail to the owners at no cost, along with a digital copy.
