Love Our Collections: Film at the RIHS

The Rhode Island Historical Society is hosting a weekly virtual series, Love Our Collections, highlighting the behind-the-scenes work of its staff to preserve and share over 20,000 objects, 9 million feet of motion picture film, and 10 million pages of manuscripts in its collection.

On Thursday, February 8 at 12pm, Film at the RIHS will be presented. The RIHS film collection features over 9 million feet of moving picture film. RIHS Moving Image and Audio Collection Archivist Alyssa Hefflin and Deputy Executive Director of Collections & Interpretation Richard Ring will discuss what it takes to care for such a large and fragile collection, with a focus on the labor process required to inspect, repair, and view what we have. Hefflin will also break down the specific collections and give a brief description of their history and differences.

Guests can register for free here.
