Preserving Pittsburgh's Moving Image, October 21

The iSchool, in collaboration with Pittsburgh Filmmakers, will host the Fourth Annual Three Rivers Film Symposium as a prelude to the annual Three Rivers Film Festival. On Friday, October 21, the Symposium will review the past, comment on the present, and project to the future of filmmaking within Pittsburgh. "Preserving Pittsburgh's Moving Image" will draw local collectors and stewards of collections, scholars and students, filmmakers, and film fans to discuss the impact of moving image production on community and memory in Pittsburgh. The daylong event will take place at Pittsburgh Filmmakers' Melwood screening room; this is a free event, but reservations are required due to space limitations. The event has been organized by two of the iSchool doctoral students: Lindsay Mattock and Janet Ceja. Learn more.

2011 Preservation Fair, October 22

The iSchool is pleased to co-sponsor the 2011 Preservation Fair, scheduled for October 22 at the Carnegie Museums in Oakland. "Preserving Family Treasures" is a one-day public information event at which conservators, archivists, and librarians will be available to discuss what individuals can do to save their family treasures. Recognizing that not all treasures are housed in museums, the Fair will provide the public with an opportunity to garner basic preservation information. More than 30 exhibitors will attend, including conservators specializing in books, documents, paintings, works of art on paper, photographs, and films. More details are here.
