2017 World Day for
Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Discover, Remember and Share"

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage has become a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honour audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that help to safeguard this heritage for future generations despite the many technical, political, social, financial, and other factors that threaten its survival. Audiovisual archives around the world join together annually on 27 October to celebrate their work with activities and events that not only highlight the vulnerability of this heritage, but also celebrate the often unheralded work of the heritage institutions that protect it.

This year the theme of the World Day  for Audiovisual Heritage is "Discover, Remember and Share".

Discover: Each day hundreds of thousands of  recordings  are captured, preserved and annotated  by archivists to enable search, discovery , new interpretations,  uses and enjoyment of moving image and sound recordings. Celebrate the voyages of discovery made possible by your archive in your domain.  Showcase and promote  your mission and work.
 
Share: Digital media has created opportunities as never before for archives to connect directly with their publics, sharing and engaging with new audiences across digital  platforms in ever new ways.  Promote  your shared archive events and celebrations with the archive community worldwide .

Remember: Audio-visual archives are a  cornerstone of the memory of the world, with recordings that enable recall for future generations and give context to our shared history, culture and humanity for over a century.  Promote a greater understanding of the unique role of audiovisual archives and  the need for it to be safeguarded , preserved and protected as part of our world heritage.

The eight associations forming the CCAAA (AMIA, ARSC, FIAF, FIAT-IFTA, FOCAL International, IASA, ICA, SEAPAVAA) strongly encourage all their members (and any other institutions) not only to join in the global celebrations of the 2017 World Day on and around 27 October, but also to share the information about their particular events, by filling the quick-and-easy form below (click on « Add a new World Day for Audiovisual Heritage event» below).

■Time: October 25 (Wed), 2017

The Husband's Secret (a.k.a. Wrong Love) is a lesser-known gem of Taiwanese-dialect cinema, a long-forgotten commercial movement that was hugely popular since 1956 until late 1960s. TFI collaborated with Tainan National University of the Arts to digitally restore this film starring iconic actress Chang Mei-yao, who was known for her delicate portrayals of ingenue roles.

EYE Filmmuseum Collection Center
,
Amsterdam
,
The Netherlands

This year, EYE Filmmuseum will hold open days at the EYE Collection Center to the public on the 27th and 28th of October. These two dates mark the celebration of two yearly international archival events: The UNESCO World Day of Audiovisual Heritage (WDAH) and the Home Movie Day, and they also coincide with the local initiative of 24HNoord.

24H Noord is organized by Amsterdam Marketing involving circa forty locations in Amsterdam North, opening their doors to the public. The Home Movie Day is the yearly event celebrating amateur films around the globe. The World Day of Audiovisual Heritage is celebrated every year on the 27th of October and is the official date recognized by the UNESCO to draw attention to the vulnerability of the audiovisual materials.

The motto of the World Day of Audiovisual Heritage this year is: ‘Discover, Remember and Share’. The public is invited to the EYE Collection Centre, to discover how the historical audiovisual material is preserved and made available by the specialists.
As in the past years, there will be a special focus on the historical film machines, this year particularly on amateur equipment and lesser known formats, in conjunction with the Hoe Movie Day. EYE will exhibit some special specimen from the collection, while film collector Gé Aarts will also exhibit and demonstrate some unique machines from his private collection.

The open days provide an opportunity to see and find out more about: acclimatized film depots and their management, scanning, digital formats, restoration and repair of distinct types of damage and color to the film stock, conservation of the paper materials such as posters and stills, unusual and obsolete cinema equipment, etc. It is also possible to have a guided tour about the EYE study, the biggest and most professionally specialized Dutch library on cinema. EYE’s specialists and curators will be present to tell about their work and answer questions.
On Oct, 28th, there will be two additional events related to the Home Movie Day; a celebration of the 95 years of 9,5mm stock and a screening of home movies, in collaboration with the Stichting Amateurfilm and the Dutch Institute for Sound and Vision.

Please note that the activities are free of charge and open to all. Reservation is not required.
The doors are open on Friday 12.30 to 16.30, and on Saturday 11.00 tot 15.00

University of Stirling
University of Stirling Oral History on the Web
50 years of Audio and Visual Memories from Staff and Students
27 October 2017 - 30 November -0001
University of Stirling
,
Stirling
,
United Kingdom

For ten years Stirling University Retired Staff Association (SURSA) has been recording audio and video interviews with those who were there from the beginning; a long-term activity which will continue into the future. New university staff, students and their parents probably don’t spend much time imagining what the Stirling campus was like when the first building, Pathfoot, was a huge hole in the ground but Graham Stewart, the well-known Dunblane silversmith, cycled out as a boy with his friends at night to walk the plank placed over it. For Graham and his friends, it was exciting and challenging, like the academic and architectural plans which were developed for this, the only new university in Scotland.
Sir Tam Dalyell’s tale of the choice of Stirling rather than three other competing places as the site of the new university is characteristically witty. The first deputy principal, Fred Holliday, tells us how Stirling broke the mould by admitting students not to a faculty but to the university enabling students to cross academic boundaries. Matilda Mitchell, the first Principal’s PA and the first full-time employee, describes her unorthodox interview and appointment. Peter McEwen, the founding professor of psychology, remembers how he gave the very first lecture.
There are interviews with staff who made this fledgling community work – with administrators, librarians, technicians, cleaners, porters, the first director of the Macrobert Arts Centre and the instructors in the Gannochy Sports Centre. There are also interviews with students old and new, including the initial intake of 1967 and student presidents like Lord Jack McConnell, later First Minister of Scotland. Many were attracted to come to an untried institution by the beauty of the campus, some by the innovative academic structure, and some by the fact that the university was new and that they would be pioneers. The interviews record self-discovery and academic engagement as well as some frustrations and disappointments.
There are lots of interviews about more recent life in the university too – they are all accessible on the SURSA Oral History website at: http://www.oralhistory.stir.ac.uk On visiting the site you will find photographs of the speakers, summaries of what their interviews cover, and video clips of staff and students as well as memorabilia. You can search for particular names or events. The launch is a new beginning at the end of the University’s 50th anniversary, taking the past into the future.

Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola (EQZE)
Anonymous Cinema
A journey through orphan films, amateur films and the concept of authorship
26-28 October 2017

San Sebastian
,
Spain

Coinciding with the international seminar Stories (and Aesthetics) About Anonymous and Orphan CinemaElías Querejeta Zine Eskola will open up the central warehouse of its facilities and give it the form of a gallery or audiovisual exhibition hall to host an anthological exhibition of anonymous, orphan and amateur films throughout the history of cinema.


The concept of orphan films acquired an academic and creative entity in the 1990s from new approaches to managing film archives. At that time, orphan films simply identified films without copyright or abandoned by their owners or custodians. However, the term gradually widened to include any kind of footage which has been abandoned, found or forgotten for commercial, material, cultural, political and historical reasons:  material in the public domain, home movies, film out-takes, unreleased films, industrial and educational films, clandestine work, ethnographic films, newsreels, censored material, unfinished pieces, fragments of productions from the silent era, archival material, reels found, medical films, short or unusual format films, advertisements, sponsored films, student work and any other ephemeral piece of celluloid. Rick Prelinger, founder of the online Prelinger Archives, understands orphan films as “films that do not have any controlling and censoring parents”, films that are “free to go home when they like without asking permission”, films from which “to rethink many of the unquestioned concepts of film history”.


The Anonymous Cinema exhibition covers all of the different meanings of orphan films: small fragments of films of great interest in the history of cinema (such as material by Edison or American Vitagraph), amateur works with artistic pretensions (such as those made within the Amateur Cinema League in the 30s), film collectibles (such as programmes on the First World War for Pathé Baby), bourgeois-home films made in the heart of the Soviet Union, forgotten practices of the first women enrolled in the Institute of Cinematographic Research and Experimentation in Madrid in the 50s, interventions by artists from found footage (such as the work of Rebeca Baron, Goug Goodwin and Jen Proctor) and the endless stream of material on YouTube.


The programmes that make up this “exhibition of films” are curated by Guy Edmonds, Sonia García López, Clara Sánchez Dehesa, Mirco Santi, Dan Streible, Mark Toscano and Maria Vinogradova and bring together more than 30 films or fragments of orphan films in a time span ranging from 1894 to the current day. The central space of the exhibition will also be occupied by a selection from the long tradition of Basque amateur film.

Light and chattering film projectors? - Materiality in the Cinema
27 October 2017
Filmmuseum Potsdam
,
Potsdam
,
Germany

Although digitally-produced films dominate cinema programs, some filmmakers prefer to shoot on analog film stock. Their work gives rise to new, hybrid forms of expression which defy conventional categorization, and at the same time opens up new ways of perceiving film in cinemas.


In the context of the annual UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, Filmmuseum Potsdam in cooperation with the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF's “Film Heritage” M.A. program will present two films situated between the poles of analog and digital film.


BLACK by Belgian artist Anouk de Clercq is pure cinematic experience: Darkness, light and a story on 35mm. “Dust and scratches will dance in the dark”, the film announces to its audience. Every screening of BLACK is unique: the analog film strip bears the traces of all its former screenings.


Bernd Lützeler's film CAMERA THREAT on the other hand features a variety of formats from digital video through Super-8 right up to 35mm. Dual projection is used to present images not only in succession but side-by-side, superimposed and disordered. In this way, Lützeler explores the relationship between the Indian film industry and its own visual cosmos. The distinctions between all these different formats become apparent not only in their visual aesthetics but also in how the choice of format determines certain methods of filmmaking.


On October 27, both analog and digital film projectors will run simultaneously for the first time at Filmmuseum Potsdam. The filmmakers Anouk de Clercq and Bernd Lützeler will be present for the screenings and will talk afterwards about the significance of different film formats not only in their own respective bodies of work but also in contemporary cinema and culture in general. While digital film is an undeniable part of our current and future heritage, the event emphasizes the importance of historic practices and the use of analog material in contemporary filmmaking. Analog film is alive and continues to thrive.


The evening will be compered by Sophia Wetzke (rbb – Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg).


The UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, held annually on October 27, is a commemoration of the adoption of the “Recommendation for the Safeguarding and Preservation of Moving Images” in 1980. Students of the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF's “Film Heritage” M.A. program have organized the 2017 Potsdam edition to highlight the importance and the plurality of audiovisual heritage.

Celebrating the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the Cinemateca Portuguesa-Museu do Cinema proposes a special session paying homage to Jerry Lewis (1926-2017). THE FAMILY JEWELS, which will be screened in a 35 mm print, is one of the Jerry Lewis/Jerry Lewis films, thus remembering him as the «total film-maker» that he was, besides being the «total comic actor» in the lineage of Chaplin and Buster Keaton. The third and more recent retrospective dedicated by the Cinemateca to Lewis, IN 2015, was named «The disordered order». The first one dates back to the eighties; the second one, which took place in 2006, was named, precisely, «The total film-maker». The junior programme of this month includes two other films from the 50’s starring Jerry Lewis, THE SAD SACK and DON’T GIVE UP THE SHIP.

Copia restaurada digitalmente por la Filmoteca de la UNAM. Música original de Ensamble Cine Mudo 2015.

Con el propósito de celebrar el Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual, la Filmoteca de la UNAM presentará el día 27 de octubre a las 18:00 h. en la Sala Julio Bracho del Centro Cultural Universitario de la UNAM, la película silente de Gabriel García Moreno, El tren fantasma. La copia que se proyectará fue restaurada digitalmente en 2015 por la Filmoteca de la UNAM, junto con la música original del Ensamble Cine Mudo del 2015, la cual fue compuesta siguiendo la documentación y estética de jazz-band en Orizaba, Veracruz y la Ciudad de México entre 1921 y 1928, con partituras de época, referencias a música tradicional mexicana y a la música de concierto del siglo XX. Asimismo, se proyectará una cápsula sobre el proceso de restauración de la película.


Gabriel García Moreno fundó en la ciudad de Orizaba, Veracruz, El Centro Cultural Cinematográfico, empresa mediante el cual produjo, entre 1926 y 1927, tres películas de largometraje: Misterio, El tren fantasma y El puño de hierro.
Al no cubrir las expectativas de sus inversionistas, la empresa se declara en quiebra total. En ese momento García Moreno deja las películas en manos del señor William Mayer, tesorero del Centro Cultural Cinematográfico, quien tuvo el acierto de resguardarlas en sus oficinas durante muchos años.
El historiador Aurelio de los Reyes, siendo un joven de 15 de edad, trabajaba como ayudante en el negocio de tabaco de la familia Mayer, pegando sobres de correspondencia con un pegamento hecho de una mezcla de pedazos de película cinematográfica con acetona. Sin embargo, logró percatarse de la importancia de resguardar las latas de las películas El tren fantasma y El puño de hierro, evitando la desaparición de estos títulos.
Hacia la década de los años 60’s, Aurelio de los Reyes hace las gestiones necesarias para que la familia Mayer entregara estos títulos al Mtro. Manuel González Casanova, fundador de la Filmoteca de la UNAM
La historiadora Esperanza Vázquez, al investigar la historia de El tren fantasma, logra ubicar la sinopsis de la película en el Archivo General de la Nación, en donde fue depositada para registro de la obra en 1927. A partir de este suceso, se plantea el darle una coherencia a los rollos existentes.
El tren fantasma se filmó en los exteriores de la ciudad de Orizaba, Veracruz de los años 20, a la manera de los thrillers americanos de la época; desarrolla su historia con una técnica sobresaliente para ese tiempo, utilizando como actores a gente de la alta sociedad de Orizaba. Exhibe imágenes del tren eléctrico con el que se cruzaba desde Esperanza, en Puebla, hasta la entrada al estado de Veracruz, en Maltrata.

The British Library launches a new free exhibition in October “Listen: 140 Years of Recorded Sound” explaining the importance of recorded sound since the phonograph was invented in 1877.


Visitors can: step into listening booths to hear an eclectic mix of sounds from the archive including many rare and unpublished recordings, including a signed disc of James Joyce’s reading of Ulysses alongside a complete set of playable stamps issued in Bhutan; meet 16-year-old Alfred Taylor, whose ‘Wireless Log’ from 1922 can be compared to a modern-day vlog; view items from our rarely-seen collection of players and recorders; immerse in our specially-commissioned audio installation by composer Aleks Kolkowski. And follow our timeline to learn more about key moments in the history of recorded sound. We tell a story of sound recording and explore the importance of sound in capturing history, how radio transformed society in the 20th century and how the way we listen has changed as new technologies have emerged and old ones become obselete.
https://www.bl.uk/events/listen 140 years of recorded sound 


The exhibition is part of a major British Library programme, Save Our Sounds, which will digitise the Library’s sound archive and store the sounds safely so that they can be accessed forever. https://www.bl.uk/projects/save-our-sounds


Accompanying the exhibition, which runs until 11 March 2018, is a Season of Sound, https://www.bl.uk/news/2017/october/season-of-sound-now-open . This series of events will include broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, The Radiophonic Workshop at 60, percussionist Evelyn Glennie, Classic Album Sundays, sound artist David Toop, Audio Adventures, musician Martyn Ware, with more to be announced. And on 26 October, NTS radio will broadcast an hour-long programme featuring rare field recordings of natural sounds from the collection. https://www.nts.live/

In celebration of World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, we present a powerful documentary telling the story of the displacement of a Dublin working class community through the film and video archives of the community itself.


Drawing on hundreds of hours of local material from the past thirty years, the film explores themes of loss, community, hope and defiance as the residents of Ballymun watch their familiar landscape and way of living vanish over the course of two decades. The film shows Ballymun’s iconic high-rise landscape as a space of togetherness, hope, and community activism, but also as a site of anguish and despair.


The screening will be followed by Q&A with director Turlough Kelly and producer Andrew Keogh.

Vendredi 27 octobre à 19h à la Cinémathèque des Pays de Savoie et de l’Ain, dans le cadre de la Journée Mondiale du Patrimoine audiovisuelle, et de l’exposition La machine Bolex, les horizons amateurs du cinéma, nous vous proposons une conférence unique intitulée Improvisation à la caméra et musicalités de la Bolex H 16, présentée par Vincent Sorrel de l’Université de Grenoble.


Johan Van der Keuken a utilisé la Bolex H 16 à la recherche de rythmes à la fois visuels et sonores. Alors que Paillard fabriquait des boites à musiques avant les caméras Bolex, le cinéaste savait-il que la caméra avait été conçue (en 1935) à partir des potentialités d'un instrument de musique mécanique ? Influencé par le jazz, il sculpte le temps sur des principes de coupes, variations, ruptures, saccades…). Des extraits de ses premiers films réalisés pendant les années 1960 nous permettront de voir et d'entendre mais de manière a-synchrone les analogies qu'il a faites entre la caméra et l’instrument de musique, identifiant l’improvisation comme le principal enjeu du cinéma documentaire.


Vincent Sorrel est chercheur FNS junior à l'Université de Lausanne et il enseigne la pratique du cinéma documentaire à l'Université de Grenoble-Alpes. Il a co-écrit avec Jean-Louis Comolli l'ouvrage Cinéma, mode d'emploi, paru chez Verdier en 2015.

On the occasion of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, Cinemateket Oslo will screen three new documentaries dealing with film heritage issues and contemporary cinema culture:


 


CINEMA FUTURES (Michael Palm, 2016):


 


The “digital revolution” reached the cinema late and was chiefly styled as a technological advancement. Today, in an era where analog celluloid strips are disappearing, and given the diversity of digital moving picture formats, there is much more at stake: Are the world’s film archives on the brink of a dark age? Are we facing the massive loss of collective audiovisual memory? Is film dying, or just changing? Cinema Futures travels to international locations and, together with renowned filmmakers, museum curators, historians and engineers, dramatizes the future of film and the cinema in the age of digital moving pictures.


 


With Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Tacita Dean, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, David Bordwell, Tom Gunning, Jacques Rancière, Margaret Bodde, Paolo Cherchi Usai, Nicole Brenez, Michael Friend, Greg Lukow, Mike Mashon, and many others. 


 


DAWSON CITY (FROZEN TIME) (Bill Morrison, 2015)


 


"The thrilling documentary Dawson City: Frozen Time is indescribable not because it's ambiguous (it's totally straightforward) but because it does so many things so beautifully it is hard to know where to begin." - Los Angeles Times


 


66 KINOS (Philipp Hartmann, 2016):  


 


Philipp Hartmann made a film, toured the German cinema scene with it and made that into a film too: an overview of an eclectic mix of cinemas all run by cinephiles. Shared love entails shared suffering: every Kino is under threat.

Film Screening: "Center Stage"

China

In celebration of UNESCO's "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage", the Hong Kong Film Archive is presenting Stanley Kwan's Center Stage (1992), a 2K digital copy scanned from the inter-negative and sound negative loaned from Fortune Star Media Limited. About half an hour longer than the originally released version, this 155-minute director's cut will allow audiences to savour this internationally renowned work that won Maggie Cheung the first Silver Bear award for a Hong Kong actress, in all its nostalgic splendor and historic charm.


Director Stanley Kwan subverts the biopic genre with this 1990s classic, which traces legendary 1930s Chinese screen diva Ruan Lingyu's ascent to fame and her fall from grace. Featuring an elegant performance by Maggie Cheung as Ruan, the film breaks down the glossy façade to reveal the complex woman behind the screen. It's also a fascinating trip into the golden era of Shanghai's once-illustrious film industry – often compared to Hong Kong cinema's own golden era – showing some of its most prominent figures through Ruan's eyes. In a surprising dialectic twist, Kwan cuts into the film's core narrative with black-and-white interview footage of his actors speaking about their characters, real footage of Ruan's works and behind-the-scenes footage from Kwan's set. An enlightening examination of the bond between life and art, this 155-minute director's cut is a testament to Hong Kong cinema's creative power.

The luminous and photogenic film star Louise Brooks (1906-1985) has been a symbol for the preservation of film heritage for generations. Thanks to the efforts of Henri Langlois at La Cinémathèque française her classic films Die Büchse der Pandora and Tagebuch einer Verlorenen were preserved in the critical period of the 1930s and 1940s when much of the Golden Age heritage of Weimar cinema was destroyed. At George Eastman House Louise Brooks became an incarnation of the magic of the cinema. She was even buried in Rochester, and George Eastman Museum has brilliantly restored Beggars of Life, one of her finest films. Cineteca di Bologna has restored Prix de beauté, the last European film of Louise Brooks, a celebration of beauty and a meditation on its transience. Not forgetting that Brooks herself was a brilliant film historian, essayist and memoirist.

NFSA Restores is an exciting program to digitise, restore and preserve, at the highest archival standards, classic and cult Australian films so they can be seen on the big screen in today’s digital cinemas.


CIFF is proud to present, on World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the digital restoraion of Steve Jodrell's Shame (1988) as part of NFSA Restores. Special Festival Guests, Simone Buchanan, Steve Jodrell and Michael Brindley will be present for Q&A after the screening.


Synopsis: A motorbike-riding barrister is stranded in an outback town where she finds women being violently abused and gang-raped by men who are getting away with it, unimpeded by the local police or the town’s citizenry. Provoked by the injustice, she takes matters into her own hands. Deborra-lee Furness gives her best in a strong, provocative role. The fine screenplay by Beverly Blankenship and Michael Brindley is backed by Steve Jodrell’s high-powered direction, to transcend the action genre and deliver an iconic work of feminist cinema that has won awards and followers around the world. Excellent support comes from Simone Buchanan as a young woman who gains the courage to fight back.

The film heritage festival “Film:ReStored” will take place for the second time at the Filmhaus on Potsdamer Platz from October 26‒29, 2017. It is organized by the Deutsche Kinemathek on behalf of the Deutscher Kinematheksverbund (association of German cinematheques). The festival dates have been scheduled to correlate with UNESCO’s “World Day for Audiovisual Heritage” on October 27, 2017, which is the same day that this year’s Kinopreis des Kinematheksverbundes will be awarded.


The four-day festival “Film:ReStored_02” premieres digitally restored films. Associated lectures and workshop talks will devote themselves to questions surrounding the digitalization of film heritage. This year, copyright holders and authors ‒ as partners and participants of the digitalization projects ‒ are the focus of the debates. Archives would only be able to advance the digitalization of film heritage in a very limited way without the cooperation of the license holders. Contact points between archives and active copyright holders are diverse. The source materials are stored in the archives and the technical expertise required for dealing with the historical film material can be found there as well. However, without the consent and support of the copyright holders, these resources pertaining to archival works can only be conditionally used and further developed.


Where do the objectives and means of archives and license holders overlap during the digitalization of film heritage? The integration of living copyright holders and authors (for example directors and camera crews) into the digitalization process, can be extremely valuable for treatment that is true to the original, but it can also produce areas of friction. The desire for a creative revision, for instance, may be opposed to scholarly or archivist standards. Then again, making different versions could also be a way to do justice to divergent requirements. Can common guidelines or a “happy medium” be found?
