In 2016, the Texas Archive of the Moving Image was proud to serve as co-producer for the documentary film, TOWER. Featured TAMI collections include home movies, local television, and government films. TOWER could not have been produced without the careful collection and preservation of archival film and video from the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. We hope that the success of TOWER will raise awareness and funds towards the preservation of our film heritage.
Founded in 2002 by film archivist and University of Texas at Austin professor Dr. Caroline Frick, the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to discover, preserve, provide access to, and educate the community about Texas' film heritage. TAMI's ever-growing online collection includes home movies, amateur films, advertisements, local television, industrial and corporate productions, as well as Hollywood and internationally produced moving images of Texas. By partnering with institutions and individuals across the state, TAMI digitizes and provides web access to thousands of moving images that offer insight to Texas' history and culture. TAMI's educational programs promote the sharing of Texas moving images via screenings, demonstrations, and lectures at venues across the state. TAMI also works with educators to encourage the use of Texas film in the K-12 social studies classroom.
