Abstract: Historically, the formal cataloging of film production and the acquisition of moving-image archives has reflected the Anglo, heteronormative, patriarchal culture of the film industry with an emphasis on works financed by robust Western production cultures. The result has been the marginalization of films/filmmakers outside these criteria, which in turn keeps scholars unaware of vital collection holdings and production data. This roundtable brings together representatives from moving-image catalogs and archives to discuss efforts in systematically altering the way collections are organized, accessed, and acquired. The AFI Catalog “Women They Talk About” project repurposes the database’s uniquely comprehensive, academic assets to support unprecedented empirical research about the role of gender throughout the American film industry. The Academy Film Archive’s Cultural Equity and Inclusion Project, headed by the Cataloging and Public Access departments, is conducting an investigation of the Archive’s holdings as related to underrepresented communities to better serve the needs of Academy staff and researchers. At UCLA Film & Television Archive ongoing efforts between Cataloging and Outreach departments to design staff-curated webpages, collection profiles, inventory lists and public programs connecting patrons with diverse collection materials. The Media Ecology Project is developing NEH-funded collaborations with professional catalogers and critical race studies scholars to augment vocabularies and keywords that identify and describe archival civil rights newsfilm.
