TAMI is excited to take the award-winning Texas Film Round-Up to Corpus Christi this November! We urge potential donors in Corpus to dig out their family films and videos from their drawers, attics, and closets and bring them to the Film Round-Up. We will accept Texas-related films and videos for FREE digitization at the Art Center of Corpus Christi at 100 N Shoreline Blvd from Friday, 11/14 through Sunday, 11/16. To qualify for free digitization, participants must be willing to donate a digital copy of their materials to TAMI’s archive for educational, non-profit purposes. We also collect copies of already digitized Texas-related films.

Celebrate the unique moving image history of Corpus Christi with Selena under the stars on Friday, 11/14 at 6:30 pm in the Courtyard of the Art Center. Prior to the screening, TAMI will show archival footage of the Selena tryouts in San Antonio and other footage from Corpus Christi. This event is free and open to the public. Bring your chairs or reserve a chair (free) online at EventBrite.com. Bidi bidi bom bom over to the Art Center and watch the magic of Selena in the moonlight.

TAMI will be accepting films and videos for free digitization at the Art Center on 11/14-11/15, 10 am – 5 pm and 11/16, 1 pm – 5 pm.
