The Small Gauge and Amateur Film Committee was created in 2001 to continue the work begun by AMIA’s Small Gauge Task Force and Inédits interest group. Our mission is to promote and protect the interests of small gauge and amateur film, its creators, and its advocates. “Small gauge” film includes all media smaller than 35mm—the emphasis is on 16mm, 8mm, and Super 8mm, but less common formats like 28mm and 9.5mm and amateur home video formats are also considered under the small gauge umbrella. “Amateur” film includes most non-commercial productions-especially home movies, avant-garde cinema, and undistributed materials. Any of these materials may be privately held or in the care of an archive, stock house, or other collecting institution.
