This article highlights the importance of archival material in visual and editorial research. Film archivist Elizabeth Klinck, founder of the Visual Researchers' Society of Canada, is a key figure in organizing panels and workshops at various international conferences to improve access to archival material in Canada. The relevance of archival research is illustrated in the films of reknowned auteur documentarians Alex Gibney and Robert Stone, which rely heavily on archival material for their completion and success.
