Sydney Jewish Museum wants films

The Sydney Jewish Museum has launched its Moving Image and Sound Archive…and is calling for communal contributions.  Curator Shannon Maguire told J-Wire that the museum wants that family footage which is tucked away in a drawer in many homes throughout the State.  She said: “Naturally we want to digitise it…but that is a long and expensive process. Unless those contributing can help us with the the cost of the process, it could take up to nine months before we can return the footage. But it will be held in safe hands and under special conditions to protect the material.” For full story click here.
