Event description
CINSSU AND AMIA PRESENT, THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUE STORY...

About this event

The true history of a collection of some 500 films dating from 1910s to 1920s, which were lost for over 50 years until being discovered buried in a sub-arctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory, in Dawson City, located about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

Special introduction by Christina Stewart.

Christina is a film and media archivist at Media Commons, University of Toronto Libraries. Trained at the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at George Eastman Museum, she has worked with collections at the National Steinbeck Center, George Eastman House, Northeast Historic Film, the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, and the Canadian National Exhibition Archives. She has taught film workshops through provincial archival associations across Canada and has worked at Niagara Custom Lab. Most recently, Christina published "PROVENANCE ON ICE: Dawson City: Frozen Time and the Dawson City Collection" with Professor Charlie Keil in the book "Provenance and Early Cinema" (pp.305-316).

Presented in collaboration with the UofT Student Chapter of AMIA, The Association of Moving Image Archivists. AMIA @ UofT organizes a variety of professional & social events to raise awareness about moving image preservation.
