Texas Film Preservation Round-Up Tours

The Texas Film Round-Up is a traveling media preservation and education program. The Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) and the Texas Film Commission host Film Round-Ups across the state, giving Texans an opportunity to submit their films for the free digitization program and learn about Texas media history and preservation.


  1. Films or videos must be Texas-related (shot in Texas, shot by a Texan, or the subject matter is about Texas).
  2. Contributions must be free from copyright, or the donor must be willing to grant Texas Archive of the Moving Image and the Texas Film Commission a license for use ( i.e. donor is or donor represents the copyright holder).
  3. No more than 50 films and videos may be contributed per household.
