Press release:
2004 Joint Technical Symposium:
"Preserving the Audiovisual Heritage--Transition and Access"

    On behalf of the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archive
    Associations, the Association of Moving Image Archivists is
    pleased to announce that the 2004 Joint Technical Symposium will
    take place June 24-26, 2004 in Toronto, Canada, at the Isabel
    Bader Theater. "Preserving the AudioVisual Heritage Transition
    and Access" is the theme of this 3-day event, which is expected
    to draw 300-400 attendees from around the world.

    The Joint Technical Symposium (JTS), which was first held in
    1983, is the international gathering of organizations and
    individuals involved in the preservation of original image and
    sound materials. Held every three years, JTS provides an
    opportunity for colleagues around the world and those interested
    in the field to meet and share information about original image
    and sound preservation. Panel discussions, technical
    presentations and sessions, and special screenings will focus on
    preservation and restoration of the world's moving image and
    recorded sound heritage. Attendees traditionally include
    film/video/audio archivists, laboratory technicians and
    engineers, and film/video/audio preservation specialists drawn
    from a broad cross-section of institutions responsible for
    feature films, television (national, regional and local),
    independent productions, news film and amateur productions. For
    newcomers to this vibrant, dynamic and committed community, JTS
    2004 will provide an invaluable opportunity to learn what is
    happening in the field.

    Under the auspices of UNESCO (United Nations Educational,
    Scientific and Cultural Organization) Information Society
    Division, participating organizations include: the Association
    of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA), the International Federation
    of Film Archives (FIAF), the International Federation of
    Television Archives/Fidiration Internationale des Archives de
    Tilivision (FIAT/IFTA), the International Association of Sound
    and Audiovisual Archives (IASA), the International Council on
    Archives (ICA), the International Federation of Library
    Associations and Institutions (IFLA), and the Southeast
