John Baker Film Collection
OVER ONE MILLION LINEAR FEET OF FILM
The culmination of nearly 10 years of careful collection, inspection, restoration and digitization of 16 and 35-mm film, a significant portion of the American Jazz Museum’s John Baker Film Collection is finally ready for public viewing (watch our YouTube Channel sampler).The newly constructed John Baker Film Collection Exhibit – the first new renovation to the Museum’s permanent exhibit – will open to the public in a special event featuring live jazz, a ribbon cutting ceremony, film experts and other guest presenters.The JBFC exhibit focuses on the first three areas of a planned series of rotating thematic content: “Big Bands,” “Women in Jazz,” and “African-American Dance and Jazz,” with commentary from renowned African-American film expert Pearl Bowser.
It also features new state-of-the-art SoundShower® technology, never-before-seen photos, and individual film viewing kiosks where users can browse through dozens of clips and “soundies,” short-film-performnaces that serve as the precursor to today’s music video.
