Welcome to AMIPA.org. The Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association is the only Alaskan institution, public or private, with a mission to save all Alaskan moving images. A big task! We meet that challenge by collecting endangered materials, and providing technical assistance and knowledge regarding archival needs and techniques. We educate state government and industry on the importance of acting to save Alaska's moving image heritage.
AMIPA's mission is: to collect, preserve, catalog and provide public access to Alaska's sound and moving image material, and to encourage the ongoing documentation of Alaskans and Alaska events of historical importance; to provide knowledge and assistance to other archives, private collectors, producers, institutions, and the general public; to advocate on behalf of these materials; and to educate the public, government officials and civic leaders on the importance of preserving Alaska's sound and moving image heritage.
