Founded and curated by Grover Crisp and Michael Friend, The Reel Thing addresses current thinking and most advanced practical examples in the field of preservation, restoration and media conservation, and creates an international common ground for discussion and evaluation. The Reel Thing has been presented all across the United States, as well as Europe and South America, since its inception in 1994.
