SF film archive records and preserves history

San Franciscans wanting to get rid of boxes of old super-8s can drop their canisters off at the San Francisco Media Archives, a museum that has a very inclusive collection development policy. In exchange for their donations of everything from family vacations to experimental and educational movies, donors are given viewable copies on disc or tape. Films donated to the archives are used by researchers, historians and the general public. More here from the San Francisco Chronicle.
