Benedict Salazar Olgado has been named the recipient of the 2011 Kodak Fellowship in Film Preservation, an award established to foster and support the next generation of preservationists and archivists in the industry. Olgado receives a cash scholarship from Kodak that is administered by AMIA (Association of Moving Image Archivists), in addition to a four-week summer internship next year, organized by PRO-TEK, a Kodak company that operates world-renowned film and video preservation vaults, and provides inspection and restoration management consultation services. The internship will include a comprehensive agenda with training at PRO-TEK, Chace Audio by Deluxe, and FotoKem’s digital and photochemical lab. Kodak initiated this successful program 12 years ago, and 11 of the past recipients are now working in the field at such organizations as the Library of Congress, NARA (National Archives and Records Administration), and Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. “We designed the Kodak Fellowship program to augment the education that future preservationists and archivists receive,” says PRO-TEK’s Vice President Rick Utley. “They gain exposure to the industry, hands-on experience and the opportunity to meet many people in a thriving and passionate community. It’s a great way for Fellows to evaluate next steps for their careers.” A native of the Philippines, Olgado will receive a master’s degree in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in May 2012. His long-term goal is to become an active part of the international preservation community, and work to safeguard audio-visual legacies across the globe. “I am extremely grateful for this award,” Olgado says. “This recognition affirms and strengthens my dedication as a budding audio-visual archivist. I’m looking forward to developing my skills this summer, and am honored to belong to a roster of individuals who have gone on to become key players in the field.” Olgado has gained experience as a senior administrator at the Southeast Asia Pacific Audiovisual Archive Association. He simultaneously worked on projects with UNESCO and did film programming in Southeast Asia. He’s worked on the Maya Deren collection at the Anthology Film Archives and in the mixed media collections of Appalshop, among others. Olgado earned his bachelor’s degree at Ateneo de Manila University with a double major in communications and social sciences prior to enrolling at NYU. He is an active member of AMIA and SOFIA (Society of Filipino Archivists for Film).
