media preservation on the move

Welcome to Cinemobilia!

At the intersection of remediation, creative practice, and archival studies, the Cinemobilia mobile media digitisation lab is a mobile infrastructure tailored to the unique archival and presentation needs of marginalized communities in Canada, specifically community collections that represent an underserved or underrepresented group or community (Indigenous Peoples, women, the LGBT2Q+ community, and immigrant communities).

The project facilitates archiving of audio-visual media, documentation of intangible heritage, presentation of materials in community contexts, and preservation of content, in partnership with established archives and cultural institutions to create participatory forms of archiving, remediation, and presentation.
