Need for Inuit Film and Video Archives urgent

Long-time IBC Executive Director, Debbie Brisebois, presented on the proposed Inuit Film and Video Archives at the Pan-Canadian Documentary Heritage Forum in Ottawa, November 6, 2012.

Presentation Text


The Archives is part of the Nunavut Media Arts Centre to be built in Iqaluit by 2015. Preserving the 30 years of Inuit film and video productions, an unprecedented collection in Canada and perhaps around the world of Inuit social, political and cultural history, is urgent. The collection is currently at risk, spread out in facilities that cannot meet the necessary archiving standards for preservation. The clock is ticking!
