This presentation is a profile on the greatest film archivist you've never heard of - Jane Paul(b.1958-d. 2018). Jane Paul's 31 years of service at New Zealand’s Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision, and its predecessor, the NZ Film Archive is a monumental contribution to film archival practice. Jane’s influence on New Zealand’s moving image heritage is evident in the collections she brought in, the grants she received, and the respect she garnered from her peers  Nevertheless, Jane's 31-year career is an extraordinary example of the people, often women, who do outstanding work, leave behind a legacy so large, and yet remain unsung heroes in our field.  This presentation will explore Jane's legacy while evaluating how we acknowledge film archival contributions. Whose labor is highlighted, and whose labor goes unacknowledged.
