George Eastman House Names New Curator of Motion Pictures
Dr. Caroline Frick has been named curator of motion pictures at George House International Museum of Photography and Film.
ROCHESTER, NY.- Dr. Caroline Frick has been named curator of motion pictures at George House International Museum of Photography and Film, the third largest film archive in the United States. Assuming her position on March 1, she is the sixth curator of motion pictures in the museum’s 61-year history. She has previously worked in film preservation at Warner Bros., Library of Congress, and the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

At Eastman House she oversees motion picture preservation efforts and the L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation, as well as the care of the motion picture collections and programming for the Dryden Theatre and 360 | 365 George Eastman House Film Festival. She also will assume teaching responsibilities in film studies at the University of Rochester.

“Dr. Frick is an international intellectual leader in motion pictures,” said Dr. Anthony Bannon, the Ron and Don Fielding Director of George Eastman House. “Her strength is in the scope of her experience and her strong advocacy for access and education. These factors make her the ideal curator of our collection and leader of all of our motion picture efforts.

“This is the perfect time for her to join our team,” he noted. “We look forward to drawing on her wisdom, developed in many areas of the industry as well as in academia, to strengthen our current ways of working and seeing, as well as to challenge us to create new directions appropriate for our times.”

Frick founded the Texas Archive of the Moving Image, an organization devoted to the discovery and preservation of media related to the state of Texas, for which she most recently served as executive director and as an assistant professor with the University of Texas at Austin.

Frick also has programmed films for the American Movie Classics cable channel and is a former director of the board for the Association of Moving Image Archivists. Her book, Saving Cinema, is forthcoming from Oxford University Press.

Frick received her master’s degree in film archiving and film history from the University of East Anglia, UK, and obtained her Ph.D. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin.

“I am pleased and honored to join George Eastman House, particularly given today’s unprecedented opportunities for building upon and expanding the museum’s excellent work in all aspects of moving image collection, preservation, and education,” Frick said. “I look forward to continuing to champion Eastman House’s leading reputation in film preservation while also helping shepherd the department and collection to engage with access opportunities of the digital age.”
