Reggae Film Archive to be launched at National Library of Jamaica

Entertainment Minister Olivia Grange has announced that the Reggae Films In The Park event has launched preparations to establish the new digital Reggae Film Archive at the National Library of Jamaica.
 
Miss Grange said this is a big step towards preserving Jamaica's cultural heritage and Reggae history on film.
 
Addressing the Emancipation Park audience at the recent screening of Legends of Ska, she said the film side of Reggae is not mentioned that often due to the fact that there is very little early footage which is easily accessible of the founding Reggae musicians. 
 
Most of the footage that does exist is scattered across the globe in archives and private collections and is often difficult and costly to access.
