Opening Up the Rhode Island Historical Society Film Archives
Becca Bender recently assumed the newly created position of Film Archivist & Curator of Recorded Media at the Rhode Island Historical Society. RIHS has one of the largest regional film collections in the country, and Becca will give a glimpse into its vast holdings, as well as discuss her plans for increasing access to the materials and expanding the Rhode Island communities represented among RIHS’ audiovisual collections.
Additionally, Becca will speak on the topic of providing special collections materials to filmmakers, and finding a balance when working with these often demanding researchers. Prior to joining RIHS, Becca worked for many years as a documentary archival producer, so she understands both worlds!
If you attend this program you will: become more familiar with an epic film resource right here in Rhode Island, learn how to better serve documentary film makers who want to use your collection, and still have time to network with your colleagues!
