The Archaeology Channel Conference on Cultural Heritage Media, organized by Archaeological Legacy Institute, is a gathering for the discussion of audiovisual media for the study, preservation and promotion of cultural heritage.  This is a collaborative effort to further the development of cultural heritage media as a strong and positive influence for people everywhere.  We focus on topics of interest to cultural heritage professionals, media professionals and all those interested in applications of cultural heritage media.

We envision this as an unparalleled worldwide networking opportunity for cultural heritage filmmakers and others interested in the making and uses of cultural heritage media, including archaeologists, indigenous groups, musicians, artists, tourism operators, journalists, educators, historic preservation organizations, and others.

TAC Conference activities will include symposia, presentations, and forums. TAC Conference is held as a part of the sixteenth annual edition of The Archaeology Channel International Film Festival, a juried competition in the cultural heritage film genre and a celebration of cultural heritage media.  The TAC Conference venue is the Hotel Eugene, located in downtown Eugene, Oregon, USA.
