TAMI is excited to bring the award-winning Texas Film Round-Up to Corpus Christi! We will accept Texas-related films and videos for FREE digitization at the Art Center of Corpus Christi at 100 N Shoreline Blvd. We urge potential donors to dig their family films and videos out of their attics, sheds, or garages and bring them to the Texas Film Round-Up. To qualify for free digitization, participants must be willing to donate a digital copy of their materials to TAMI’s archive, a digital collection at texasarchive.org. We also collect copies of already digitized Texas-related films.
We will be in the Meadows Gallery of the Art Center on 11/14-11/15, 10 am – 5 pm; and 11/16, 1 pm – 5 pm. Stop by to check out our exhibit on Gulf Coast film history and film preservation, and you can also watch archival footage of Corpus Christi and the area while you’re there. Bring your films and videos and help us save Texas history with your memories!
TAMI is also hosting a film screening of Selena under the stars on 11/14 at 6:30 pm in the Courtyard of the Art Center. Prior to the screening, we will show archival footage from the Selena tryouts in San Antonio. Bidi bidi bom bom over to the Art Center and watch the magic of Selena in the moonlight. Entrance is free, but a ticket is required -- get yours here!
