As the new set of UvA Moving Image Preservation students are reaching the end of their first Semester in Amsterdam, the new AMIA Student Chapter Executive Committee from 2016-2017 would like to introduce themselves:
President: Krystel Brown
Vice President: Niamh O’Donnell
Secretary: Jim Wraith
Treasurer: Fatma Amer
Whilst we have differing backgrounds in the field, we are currently working together to arrange different trips and events for our members including our recent trip to the Film Atelier Den Haag and the Super 8 Reversal Lab, also in Den Haag. We also aim to provide regular film screenings around Amsterdam once we find a suitable venue and projector. Our first international trip for 2017 will be to the 67th Berlinale International Film Festival in February.
Overall, we wish to provide the best opportunities for the members to progress in the fields they are interested in, including film preservation, curation, programming, restoration and more. If you wish to follow us as we avidly work over the next few months we will be blogging here as well as adding content to facebook, instagram and twitter as we go along, so join us for a merry 2017.
The Executive Committee
