IBC would like to extend a warm welcome to Loretta Kanatsiak (bio), who has filled the new position of Multi-media Archivist for the Inuit Film and Video Archives located at the Nunavut Media Arts Centre in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Loretta and other Iqaluit staff are receiving archival training on site and through distance courses until March 2016. The training program will assist IBC in developing its archiving policies and procedures to preserve and promote its extensive and historic Inuktut video collection. This groundwork will also assist IBC with the development of partnerships that assist other holders of Inuit film and video in the future.
