MARMIA is a nonprofit organization with the mission to preserve and provide access to movies and sounds that document the arts, history, and culture of the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region.
We define the Mid-Atlantic region as including Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. MARMIA offers audiovisual archival services and training to organizations and individuals holding unique moving images and recorded sounds in the Mid-Atlantic. We also collect these regional audiovisual materials–particularly those that are especially at-risk of being lost. MARMIA’s collections include home movies, oral histories, mixtapes, local television and radio, found VHS-tapes, and more. Our largest is the WJZ-TV Collection, which holds thousands of hours of content created by Baltimore television station WJZ-TV, ranging in date from the 1950s through 2000.
MARMIA is an access provider of this rare media through reformatting, exhibition, and educational programming. Digitized content can be searched, browsed, and watched on our Aviary page.
