Inuit Art Quarterly - - NEWS -

The Inuit Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (IBC) an­nounced in March that sig­nif­i­cant progress has been made on pre­serv­ing the Inuit Film and Video Archives (IFVA). The IBC pro­duces award-win­ning tele­vi­sion pro­gram­ming by Inuit, for Inuit, and it sup­ports and cel­e­brates Inuit cul­tural iden­tity and prac­tices. They have col­lected over 40 years of film that in­cludes an es­ti­mated 9,000 hours of footage, which IFVA ar­chiv­ists are work­ing to dig­i­tally pre­serve and phys­i­cally pro­tect. The ar­chive is made avail­able to on­site re­searchers and dig­i­tally through re­search re­quests; a small por­tion of con­tent is avail­able on­line at the IBC, the Abo­rig­i­nal Peo­ples Tele­vi­sion Net­work and Isuma TV web­sites.
