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.
- Films or videos must be Texas-related (shot in Texas, shot by a Texan, or the subject matter is about Texas).
- 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).
- No more than 50 films and videos may be contributed per household.
