Archives Council of Nunavut urges completion of NMAC soon



Archives Council of Nunavut: “During a tour of IBC’s current film and video storage facility, ACN members were extremely concerned to view such an amazing collection of valuable information open to rapid deterioration. We know that IBC staff do their very best at this time with what is available to them but without a proper facility, migration of film to more modern carriers, controlled humidity, fire safe containers and proper documentation, much of this information could soon be lost for ever.

“The Archives Council of Nunavut is in full support of the campaign by the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation to build a New Media Arts Centre and especially one housing a dedicated area for Inuit Film and Video Archives. It is of utmost importance to Nunavut as a Territory and the preservation of Inuit knowledge that this Media Preservation Centre is built and in operation as soon as possible.”
