Here's the original call for proposals for your information:
At the 2021 ACA Conference the Sound and Moving Image SIS will be presenting our first ever online Archival Screening Night - a program of preserved short video and/or film clips plus pre-recorded introductions (5 minutes or less) from archives across Canada. We are now accepting proposals to be part of the program.
If you have a digitized film from a recent discovery or preservation effort you’d like to prepare a short clip from to be screened as part of this program please send us a proposal via this form:
Please note we are planning to make this screening open to the public so please be aware of the copyright status for your clip.
Clips can, but do not have to, relate to the conference theme of "Home Improvement: Building archives through change": https://archivists.ca/2021
The screening will take place on the evening of Thursday, June 10th online. There will be a live q&a after the screening. The deadline for submissions is April 15th. You will be informed if your clip is chosen in early May.
