The Chris Awards Collection
A brief history...
The Columbus Film Council was founded in 1950, by the late Dr. Edgar Dale, Professor Emeritus of The Ohio State University and others interested in promoting the use of 16mm motion pictures. Two years later, the Columbus Film Festival was born. Since its inception 53 years ago, the object of the Film Council has been to encourage and promote the use of motion-based media in all forms of education and communication, not only in the local community, but throughout the world. In 1985 the Chris Awards Film Collection was established at The Ohio State University’s Department of Photography & Cinema. It’s purpose is to encourage scholarly study of the photographic and electronic media of information, art, and entertainment genres. It contains a wealth of documentary and informational film and video research. The collection has been used as a data base for Master’s theses and Ph.D. dissertations as well as general research.
