In 2019, PBS will air Country Music, a major documentary film series on the history of country music, produced and directed by Ken Burns and written and produced by Dayton Duncan.
To help them tell this story, they would like to collect home movies from fans and musicians for possible use in the film: families enjoying country music parks; crowds at fan fairs and concerts; behind the scenes and on the road with musicians. They are specifically looking for home movies from the time period of the 1950s through the mid 1990s.
If your home movies are used in Country Music, you will receive a DVD of the series, a poster signed by Ken Burns, and will be thanked in the film’s credits.
Please send home movies from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and/or 1990s. Do not send original footage: DVD or digital copies only. THE MATERIAL WILL NOT BE RETURNED. If your home movie gets selected for use, Florentine Films will contact you about getting access to the original footage. Clearly mark the disc with your name, address, phone number and e-mail (if available), so they can contact you if your footage is selected. Include a brief description, e.g., Sunset Park, Pennsylvania, July 1962; Fan Fair, Nashville, 1996.
Send your movie(s) by December 31, 2016 to:
