Scope and Content

Series consists of originals and copies of some of the films and related textual and photographic records created by Toronto Film and Video Club (TFVC) members. Some of the films are in black and white and others are in colour; some are silent and others have sound.

Some of the films document different cultural and historical events mostly in Southern Ontario, including historic footage of Niagara Falls, Toronto and Thornhill as well as featuring royal visits. Some of the films illustrate different film techniques including animation. A majority of the films tell fictional stories representing the interests and concerns of the movie makers. Some of the films found in this series are award winners.

The textual records were found with the original containers and provide information to assist the projectionists.

The photograph depicts the Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto and was found with the original DVD container. The image includes the date 2007 and the title of the theatre, which is also the title of the DVD.

Records are mostly in chronological order.
