The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) is a vital, international, non-profit network of professionals dedicated to the advancement of effective, ethical and inclusive archival practices for the preservation, cataloging and exhibition of moving image materials. Essential to its longevity and educational mission are AMIA’s many student chapters at leading universities around the world. The first of these chapters was founded in 2000 at UCLA and in the years since its members have contributed to the mission of the UCLA Film & Television Archive in myriad ways behind the scenes in support of its preservation, collections and cataloging efforts, with some going on to join the Archive staff and leadership.

The Archive is thrilled now to inaugurate a new, public-facing collaboration with these passionate students: the Archive Treasures UCLA AMIA Student Chapter Takeover! For three nights in March, we’ve turned the Billy Wilder Theater over to UCLA AMIA chapter members to curate a program of prints and media from the Archive’s collection. As expected, they’ve put together an exciting, eclectic lineup of classics and rarities, with each evening organized around a unique theme. AMIA student members will be on hand each night to introduce their programs and share their insights into their selections. Please join us for this special weekend of fantastic cinema and to support the next generation of moving image archivists!

Series curated and program notes written by Christopher Castro, Felicity Flesher, and Yesenia Perez.
