About the Workshops

The AMIA Projection Workshops are in partnership with The Film Foundation and in collaboration with Boston Light & Sound.

The workshops  offer speakers and hands-on tutorials for projectionists at different levels of experience working with 35mm film prints and will focus on film preparation and projection as well as special stipulations for archival projection, and coordinating with lending institutions.  The workshops are aimed at those who have some booth experience and are looking to expand their knowledge and skills.
