The Texas Film Round-Up discovers, preserves, and shares the stories of Texans by digitizing and providing access to their obsolete media. The program has resulted in the digitization of more than 50,000 films and videotapes, dating as far back as 1910. Every year we discover new Texas stories through the films and videotapes contributed by our Round-Up participants. The Round-Up provides an opportunity for people across the state to contribute to the larger story of Texas.
