Scope and content
Sub-sub-series consists of 16mm films created by SFU students who participated in the SFU Film Workshop. There are multiple reels associated with each film title that represent the individual production elements (i.e. A Roll, B Roll, Magnetic track, Optic Track and Work Print).
Immediate source of acquisition
Each individual film title is represented as an item; each item may be associated with multiple film reels (different production elements). Items were arranged by the archivist chronologically. Note that there is no item 4.

Restrictions on access
There is no access to the original film material in this collection until the material has been conserved. As the originals are in a fragile physical condition, access will be provided only through digitization. Consult the reference archivist for more information about access these films.
Copyright in any given work remains with the student who created the work. Copyright has not been transferred to the Archives, and permission to use copyright-protected material is managed on a case-by-case basis. Speak with the reference archivist for details about the use of copyrighted materials.
Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication
Some films have item level descriptions, mainly transcribed from contemporary descriptions. Sources for descriptions in quotations are cited in the scope and content note. Most of the cast and crew credits have been captured as access points at the item-level; see Appendix A of this finding aid.
Generated finding aid
See sub-sub-series F-109-14-2-2 for textual records relating to individual productions; not all production have a corresponding paper file.
Further accruals are expected.
From April to October 2007 a detailed physical examination of the films was completed. Each film reel was individually re-cored, housed into a new film can, and given an unique item number. The films were described according to length, sound, colour, format, production element, and type of film stock base. Textual material (production notes) was removed from the film cans and refiled into archival file folders that became series 14-2-1.
The individual films were also physically inspected to set preservation benchmarks. Information about film playback condition (rewinding), leaders, splices, warping, and existence of masking tape on the film stock was recorded. The Archivist also completed A-D strip testing on each film to determine the extent of vinegar syndrome (an indication of film base deterioration). A summary of these findings can be found in the Appendix.
In June and July 2009, and from January to March 2010, all of the films were re-tested for vinegar syndrome. The findings were added to the Preservation Condition Report in the appendix.
There are 902 film elements (e.g., A rolls, B rolls, magnetic tracks, etc.) representing 211 individual film titles/productions.
