Texas Film Round-Up FREE Digitization Program

The Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) provides new access to films and videos by converting them to digital files or DVDs. 

  TAMI offers FREE digitization for Texas-related films and videos.  To qualify: 

  - Your films or videos must be Texas-related  
     (They were filmed in Texas, filmed by a Texan, or are about Texas) 

  - You must be willing and able to contribute a digital copy of the materials to the archive
    ( i.e. you are or you represent the copyright holder)

  - Your collection may total no more than 3,500 feet of film or 50 reels of film (whichever is less), and include no more than 10 video tapes.

The Texas Film Round-Up visits several Texas cities and regions every year to collect your films and videos.  Contact TAMI at info@texasarchive.org to learn where we are taking the Round-Up next!

  This program is offered in partnership with the Office of the Governor’s Texas Film Commission.
