Fueled by the dramatic changes taking place in the world of both photography and film with the advent and growth of digital technology, our master of arts (MA) program in Film + Photography Preservation and Collections Management now offers specializations in both film and photo preservation. Our unique curriculum is developed and delivered by a range of specialists, from historians of photography and film to library and archival professionals. The two-year course of study will prepare graduates to meet the challenges faced by institutions and organizations that strive to manage, maintain and develop object- and digital-based collections.
TAKE TWO: Reflecting on Toronto Filmmakers from 1965 to 1972
May 4th, 2015
Image Arts Building - Room 304 and Room 310
In 2013 Ryerson University expanded their Photographic Preservation and Collections Management masters program to include a moving image preservation stream. Tj Alston, Alex Jokinen, Chelsea Keen, and Stacey Turner are the first cohort of students to go through the moving image stream. They were joined in 2014 by Bing Wang, a recent graduate of the Photographic Preservation masters program. Each one comes from a different educational and professional background ranging from film studies to curatorial work to art history, and this diversity of knowledge has allowed them to learn from each other as much as from their studies. Graduating in 2015, they are all excited to pursue a future in the film archival and heritage management field.
