The Texas Film Round-Up is coming to Laredo!

July 18, 2019 | Laredo, Texas

Calling all South Texans! Here’s your chance to help preserve family memories and Texas history. The Texas Film Round-Up is coming to Laredo on July 25, and you are invited to bring old films and videotapes for free digitization.

Your films and videotapes are valuable records of Texas history and culture. With your help, the media heritage of our great state will be available for future generations to appreciate.

It’s easy to participate. Simply drop off up to 50 films and 10 videotapes that are Texas-related—that means they were filmed in Texas, are by a Texan or are about Texas. The materials will be digitized in Austin, added to the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and then returned to you along with a digital copy.
