The Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound (TAMIS) was created to collect, preserve, and exhibit rare film images, video, and recordings.  The archive’s area of interest is in Knoxville and the surrounding regions of East Tennessee.

Film archivists Bradley Reeves, Louisa Trott, and Larry Odham established the Archive in November, 2005.  Since then, they have volunteered their time and resources tracking down historical images and recordings originating in the Knoxville region.  Many of these rare films, videos, and recordings have been transferred to DVD and CD, and will be shown at public screenings as well as accessible for research projects in the future.
