Archival history

After the Cape Town International Film Festival ceased to operate, a number of viewing tapes were temporarily stored at the Western Cape Provincial Library Service. After the festival's last director, Trevor Steele Taylor, heard that the Weekly Mail material had been donated to the Visual History Archive, he decided to move the CTIFF tapes there as well.
