Since 2008, the Texas Archive of the Moving Image has driven nearly 17,000 miles of lone star highways, two lane roads, and even a sandy beach with the Texas Film Round-Up program. The Film Round-Up, a program developed in partnership with the Office of the Governor’s Texas Film Commission, offers free digitization, educational programs, and preservation assistance for obsolete motion pictures and videos related to the state. The result?  Tens of thousands of hours, and over 30 TB, of digital video capturing the life of Texas companies, notables, and families -- at work and at play, eating, celebrating, and even mourning. The archive has been proud and grateful to have collaborated with a wide range of organizations, from rural historical societies to preeminent university archives and special collections, as well as hundreds of individuals to re-think what American film history should be and how contemporary media preservation is defined. This keynote will provide background and overview of the work of the Texas Archive of the Moving Image in its quest to discover, preserve, and share hidden histories of the state.
