Margaret Cram and other itinerant women directors made Movie Queen films in the 1930s. Movie Queen, Lubec was shot on the coast of Maine and preserved by Northeast Historic Film.
As the lead partner on the grant, titled The Woman Behind the Camera: Home Movies and Amateur Film by Women, 1925-1997, NHF will embark on an 18-month project to digitize home movies and amateur film and video made by women in the 20th century, and to make this material accessible online and to researchers. The $322,000 grant will be shared among NHF and its co-collaborators, the Chicago Film Archives (CFA) and the Lesbian Home Movie Project (LHMP).
NHF is a nonprofit archives dedicated to collecting, preserving and sharing northern New England's moving image heritage. We run a three-story vault holding 10 million+ feet of film, a public study center, a 140-seat theater, and enjoy the support of 400+ members.
