Join us for an exclusive tour of the TIFF Film Reference Library with Natania Sherman, Library Collections and Services Manager, to get an overview of their preservation initiatives with FIAF and Telefilm, rare resources on Canadian and Toronto film productions, as well as special items related to the collections of Mary Pickford, Atom Egoyan, and David Snider

Additionally, their current exhibition, The Past in Play, will be on display featuring objects and documents from the TIFF Film Reference Library’s Guy Maddin, Edith Nadajewski, Patricia Rozema, and David Cronenberg Collections. 

Archive Fever Friday is an ongoing tour of Film and Media archives in Toronto that seeks to expand research horizons and encourage work with local film and media materials by forging ties among students, scholars, artists, and archivists in the Toronto community. 

Dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Canadian cinema heritage, the Film Reference Library provides access to extensive and non-circulating resources and Special Collections to support all aspects of film research, programming, and screenwriting. 

Followed by a social (5:30-6:30pm) to continue the conversation at Beertown Public House (125 Wellington St). Snacks will be provided.
