Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association
AMIPA's mission is to collect, preserve, catalog and provide public access to Alaska's sound and moving image material, and to encourage the ongoing documentation of Alaskans and Alaska events of historical importance; to provide knowledge and assistance to other archives, private collectors, producers, institutions, and the general public; to advocate on behalf of these materials; and to educate the public, government officials and civic leaders on the importance of preserving Alaska's sound and moving image heritage. Established as a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation in 1991, AMIPA has been pursuing this mission for over 20 years.
To celebrate and raise public awareness of some of the unique, historic collections and resources held by two archival institutions here in Southcentral Alaska, the Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association (AMIPA) and UAA Archives and Special Collections will co-host an open house.
AMIPA will present a new edition in our popular “Politics of the Past” screening series-featuring vintage political spots and other moments from Alaskan public life.
