TIFF Higher Learning presents  Friday, March 6, 11am–12:30pm EST at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Reitman Square, 350 King Street West, Toronto ON. This event is free and open to the public. ​​If you cannot attend in person, consider watching the live stream:
Part of ​the​ Reel Heritage initiative, this public lecture, delivered by Toronto-based media and film archivist Christina Stewart is dedicated to the whys and hows of motion picture handling, the value of proper training, the tools of the motion picture handler, and the material history of the film medium. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. In advance of the event, we will be taking questions for Christina Stewart on Twitter via #reelheritage.
Christina Stewart has a background in Media Arts and is a graduate of the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation at George Eastman House. She has worked with collections at the Canadian National Exhibition Archives, Northeast Historic Film, National Steinbeck Center, and the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, in addition to the Warner Bros.
