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).

III Seminário do Patrimônio Audiovisual em Saúde na Fiocruz
‘Plataformas digitais e sua aplicação na preservação e difusão de acervos audiovisuais’
14 November 2017
Avenida Brasil, 4.365, Campus Fiocruz
,
Rio de Janeiro
,
Brasil

Pelo terceiro ano, o Icict e a Casa de Oswaldo Cruz promovem, no mês de novembro, uma atividade de debates em torno da preservação do patrimônio audiovisual. Nessa edição, o III Seminário do Patrimônio Audiovisual em Saúde na Fiocruz traz o foco para ferramentas, métodos e plataformas de preservação digital de audiovisuais. O seminário é gratuito e será realizado na terça-feira, 14 de novembro, às 9h, no Salão de Leitura da Biblioteca de Manguinhos.

Promovido pelo Centro de Estudos do Icict, o evento é alusivo ao Dia Mundial do Patrimônio Audiovisual, 27 de outubro, estabelecido pela Organização das Nações Unidas para a Educação, a Ciência e a Cultura (Unesco). De acordo com a organização, documentos audiovisuais tem um papel crucial no patrimônio cultural, guardando aspectos da memória coletiva e transmitindo conhecimento. A data comemorativa visa aumentar a conscientização sobre sua importância e valorizar os profissionais e instituições responsáveis pela missão de preservá-los.

A programação do seminário conta com a mesa redonda ‘Plataformas digitais e sua aplicação na preservação e difusão de acervos audiovisuais’, com o mediador Antônio Laurindo, do Arquivo Nacional. Os debatedores serão Rubens Ribeiro Gonçalves da Silva, da Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA), que abordará a iniciativa Legatum, um conjunto de metodologias colaborativas para repositórios digitais de preservação de acervos audiovisuais; e Antônio Júnior, do Centro de Mídia Independente, que discutirá o tema "Audiovisual como estratégia de informação e comunicação alternativa em contraponto à grande mídia"; e Victor Ribeiro, representante da Witness Brasil, que fará o lançamento da publicação 'Guia de Arquivamento de vídeo para ativistas'.

Esse ano, a Unesco sugeriu como mote para o Dia Mundial do Patrimônio Audiovisual o lema “Descubra, lembre-se e compartilhe”. Seguindo essa linha, o seminário debate as plataformas digitais e seu papel para a preservação e difusão dos acervos audiovisuais. O evento acontece em paralelo à Semana Fluminense do Patrimônio, que inclui uma série de atividades voltadas ao tema, e também acompanha a agenda da Fiocruz, que atualmente se debruça em torno da elaboração de uma política institucional de preservação de acervos.

"Esperamos fomentar as discussões sobre a relevância desse tema em um momento tão crucial e marcante, sobretudo no que diz respeito às formas de se pensar em como preservar o patrimônio audiovisual da Fiocruz. Sendo o audiovisual o gênero documental mais impactado pela questão tecnológica e pelos desafios impostos pela era digital, acreditamos que, a VideoSaúde/Icict e a Casa de Oswaldo Cruz têm um papel protagonista em discussões sobre o tema da preservação audiovisual, no âmbito da instituição", aponta um dos organizadores do encontro, João Guilherme Machado, da VideoSaúde.

No campo audiovisual, a Fiocruz detém acervo de interesse especial ao campo da ciência e da saúde, com material histórico em diversos suportes, como filmes, fitas, dentre outros. As inscrições são gratuitas e aqueles que se registrarem antecipadamente, pelo site de eventos do Icict, receberão certificado de participação. Vagas limitadas. O seminário também pode ser assistido pela internet, ao vivo, no canal da VideoSaúde Distribuidora.

La Embajada de la República de China (Taiwán) en República Dominicana, el Ministerio de Cultura y la Dirección General de Cine (DGCINE), a través de la Cinemateca Dominicana, con la colaboración del Taiwan Film Institute, presentarán “La posada del dragón” (Long men kezhan, 1967), dirigida por King Hu, en conmemoración del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual, en el marco de la Muestra de Cine “Taiwán”, el viernes 27 de octubre del 2017, en las instalaciones de la dependencia.  

Esta proyección especial forma parte de las celebraciones que se llevarán a cabo en los archivos fílmicos y cinematecas a nivel mundial, gracias a que en el año 2005, la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura (UNESCO, por sus siglas en inglés), declaró el 27 de octubre como Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual, como mecanismo para concienciar al público del gran valor histórico y cultural que poseen las documentos audiovisuales, y medida para evitar sus desapariciones en el tiempo.     

“La posada del dragón” se encuentra dentro del top 10 en el ranking de las 100 mejores películas chinas, y su director es el único que cuenta con dos filmes de su autoría en los primeros 10 lugares de este ranking.

Este clásico del celuloide cuenta la historia del Emperador Zhao, quien al ordenar la muerte de los hijos de su mayor rival, desata una serie de enfrentamientos entre quienes tendrán que cumplir la orden, y aquellos que tratarán de evitar que se cumpla.

La proyección se realizará el viernes 27 de octubre, a las 7:00 P.M., en las instalaciones de la Cinemateca Dominicana y, como todos los programas de difusión cinematográfica presentados en este espacio, la entrada será libre de costos.

La Muestra de Cine “Taiwán” se realiza gracias al apoyo del Ministerio de Cultura de ese país, a través de su proyecto Spotlight Taiwan, que tiene como propósito promover los intercambios y cultivar el interés en el conocimiento de la cultura taiwanesa en todo el mundo, estableciendo lazos culturales entre las naciones integradas.

ARCHIVIO APERTO (10.27-12.02/2017)

Archivio Aperto marks the tenth year in the evolution of Home Movies - Archivio Nazionale del Film di Famiglia (National Italian Home Movies Archive). 

A full overview of this year's program:
The Italian landscape by car as shot by amateur filmmakers, a theme offering incredible visual richness starting from the program’s inaugural screening.
Experimental and artistic cinema, cultural heritage of immeasurable value reinforced by the activities at Home Movies through screenings of footage not seen since the time of its creation. An incredible story told by two 8mm films shot during World War II, only to be developed seventy years later— eyewitnesses to be deciphered in the present day. Also featured are formerly unpublished films of everyday life in the Golden Age of Sarajevo and Yugoslavia roughly twenty-five years following the onset of conflict.
A tribute to special guest Gustav Deutsch, the international master of found footage filmmaking, with a double focus on his reuse of home movies.
Also included are Italian documentaries made with images drawn from the Home Movie Archive that deal with themes inseparable from contemporary society.
Among other things, there are many ideas on a final note for the Italian Cinebox and the French Scopitone. The Juke-box with videoclips of family memories will also be playing again for AA2017!
Someone once said that Home Movies is the “garbage dump” of history, and that is a compliment: an idea that has been forgotten because it is obsolete and deemed no longer useful re-surfaces as archaeological and historical gold in a future era. Someone also argued that Home Movies is the “regenerator” of History, and this is also true, because in these ten years we have learned that the archive often puts the emotions, thoughts, and actions of our contemporaries back into motion.

To celebrate World Day for Audio Visual Heritage, we are pleased to announce that over 600 audio tapes (1/4” open reel and audio cassettes) that document the history of FIAF Congresses and Executive Committee meetings, dating from 1977-1997, have been identified and sorted, and now properly and archivally housed, and preserved. These unique historical documents had been stored for decades in the room temperature FIAF office and were not accessible, nor had these items been digitized for preservation purposes.

Indiana University Libraries Moving Image Archive (IULMIA), a FIAF Member, is now the archival home of the tapes, which have been archived and digitized, with the original materials stored in IULMIA’s offsite vault at 50° F and 30% RH, and the newly digitized files kept both in IULMIA’s dual location data storage repositories, and on hard discs in FIAF’s Brussels office.

Since July 2017, IULMIA has digitized 31 ¼ audio tapes and 372 audio cassette tapes and the remaining 274 tapes will be digitized in the coming months.

We are currently working on plans for making these important items accessible to researchers in the future.

To mark the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (Mechanism or MICT) today released a video entitled “Preserving History as it Happens: An Introduction to the Audiovisual Archives of the International Criminal Tribunals” in French, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian and Kinyarwanda.

The informational video provides an overview of the unique and diverse collection of audiovisual records contained in the Mechanism’s archives, which originate from the work of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and which are now in the Mechanism’s custody. The video also provides information on how to access these and other archival materials.

The commemoration of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage was approved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2005 to raise awareness about the importance of the preservation of audiovisual heritage and its long-term accessibility, as well as to showcase the work of institutions that contribute to safeguarding, preserving, and ensuring the accessibility of audiovisual material.

As part of its mandate, the Mechanism is responsible for preserving the archives of the ICTR, the ICTY and the Mechanism in accordance with the highest international standards, and for ensuring that the archives remain accessible to future generations.

Celebration of The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage at the Film Archives of the National Archives of Estonia is launched with the opening of a temporary exhibition on recently found materials of "Must teemant" - one of Estonia's first artistic dramas from 1923. The print is not preserved, thus the recently found intertitles and photos are the only visual and substant information on the film.

In addition to the opening of the exhibition there are various other activities such as tours to the vaults and hidden corners of the film archives, workshops, film quiz, non-stop film programme and an exhibition on rare records from Australia.

The Encyclopaedia Cinematographica (EC) which is celebrating its 65th birthday these days was intended to be a cinematic encyclopedia in which each entry consisted of a monothematic film on a given keyword (e. g. elephant walking). The title of the first EC-film with the IWF signature E1, is "Elephas maximus - Walking". The simplicity of the idea amazes and fascinates the viewer at the same time. Many of the EC-Films are ethnological films. Those are among the 2000 ehnological videos that will be digitized by TIB in the DELFT-project.

Sounds of Yesteryear, 1903-1941
27 October - 31 December 2017

Test pressings are rare artefacts, produced in small quantities of a handful per recording, to check for quality of the recordings, or for a record company to select which recordings to issue for commercial release. There are 84 test pressings in the National Archives of Singapore’s (NAS) collection.

 

In celebration of UNESCO’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on 27 October, NAS will be releasing a series of test pressings under ‘Sounds of Yesteryear’, an ongoing initiative to stream online one newly digitised pre-World War II recording every week throughout 2017.

 

The majority of these recordings were created in late 1941 and intended for release under the Extra Record label. However, the Japanese invasion of Singapore a few months later put a halt to commercial record activity, and the recordings were never released. These are the only surviving copies. By digitising and streaming these recordings online, NAS aims to highlight the importance of audiovisual preservation in keeping this unique part of Singapore’s music history alive.

Поштоване колеге,

 

Поводом Светског дана аудиовизуелног наслеђа, који се обележава сваког 27. октобра на иницијативу УНЕСКО од 2006. године, Музиколошки институт САНУ отвара по први пут врата за вођену посету шире стручне јавности свом фоноархивском фонду. Чување историјских носача звука угрожено је различитим техничким, политичким, друштвеним, финансијским и другим проблемима широм света, те се све више архива прикључује обележавању овог Дана активностима које указују на осетљивост аудиовизуелног наслеђа и значај институција које настоје да га заштите. Овогодишња тема манифестације „Откриј, запамти и подели” (“Discover, Remember and Share”) подстиче архиве да представе своје колекције и дигиталне снимке, као и да укажу на потребу за чувањем наслеђа.

 

Музиколошки институт САНУ поседује не само најстарије носаче звука на које је снимљена српска народна музика, већ и збирку неких од најважнијих документарних музичких снимака у Србији до данас. Највећи део фоноархивске грађе је дигитализован и тренутно је у процесу каталогизације. Приликом посете имаћете прилику да се упознате с различитим типовима носача звука (од воштане плоче до дигиталне картице), опремом која се користи за снимање и дигитализацију звука, па и с врстама садржаја који се налазе на снимцима у институтском фонду. Посету ће водити научни сарадник др Марија Думнић, етномузиколог, која је снимала на терену и радила је на дигитализацији и каталогизацији садржаја магнетофонских трака. Осим у сферама етномузикологије и студија популарне музике, она је активна и при Међународној асоцијацији звучних и аудиовизуелних архива (IASA).

 

У петак 27. октобра 2017. у получасовним терминима од 12 до 15 часова заинтересованима у групама до 5 особа биће представљена фоноархивска збирка и опрема. Молимо Вас да своју посету најавите електронском поштом на адресу music_inst@sanu.ac.rs тако што ћете до четвртка послати име и презиме и термин за који сте заинтересовани.

 

Срдачано,

Cineteca de la Universidad de Chile tiene el agrado de invitar a usted a la conmemoración del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual 2017. Para la oportunidad se exhibirá, como estreno exclusivo en Santiago, la versión restaurada de la película "Sueño de Amor" (José Bohr, 1935), el registro audiovisual más antiguo que se conserva del maestro Claudio Arrau, Premio Nacional de Arte 1983.

La restauración de la película "Sueño de Amor" ha sido realizada por la Cineteca de la Universidad de Chile, perteneciente al Instituto de la Comunicación e Imagen (ICEI), conjuntamente con la Filmoteca de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, y con el financiamiento del Consejo Nacional de la Cultura y las Artes por medio del Programa de Apoyo al Resguardo del Patrimonio Audiovisual, modalidad Restauración del Patrimonio, además de la colaboración de la Facultad de Artes de la Universidad de Chile.

La actividad se realizará el día Jueves 26 de Octubre a las 18:30 hrs. en el Auditorium Jorge Müller del Instituto de la Comunicación e Imagen (ICEI), ubicado en el Campus Juan Gómez Millas de la Universidad de Chile: Ignacio Carrera Pinto #1045, Ñuñoa (a pasos de las calles José Pedro Alessandri y Grecia, también ingreso por calle Las Palmeras).

31 de Octubre, 50 AÑOS DEL FESTIVAL DE NUEVO CINE LATINOAMERICANO DE VIÑA DEL MAR

Estreno "Solo" (Versión restaurada)
Aldo Francia, 1967, 11 minutos
Material encontrado correspondiente a la película “Solo” dirigida por Aldo Francia y nunca terminada, narra la historia de un sujeto que recorre las calles y cerros de Valparaíso. Es un antecedente directo de la película “Valparaíso, Mi amor” que estrenaría dos años después.


Considerado un hito dentro del cine latinoamericano, los Festivales de Cine de Viña del año 1967 y 1969 marcaron la producción del cine moderno en la región, relevando la obra de autores clave como Glauber Rocha, Miguel Littín, Jorge Sanjinez, Raúl Ruiz, Pino Solanas, Octavio Gettino, Mario Handler, entre muchos otros. Un episodio desconocido corresponde al rol que tuvo la Universidad de Chile en el apoyo a la realización de estos certámenes, por tanto la muestra busca recuperar esta historia de actores culturales que contribuyeron a resignificar la historia del cine nacional.

El Archivo General de la Nación realiza el viernes 27 de octubre la Segunda Jornada de concientización sobre el valor del Documento Audiovisual. La capacitación es abierta y gratuita, orientada a la importancia de la producción audiovisual y su conservación histórica, titulada “Historia, Memoria y Derecho”. El seminario comienza a las 9 en el Salón Auditorio del AGN, Av. Leandro N. Alem 246, y se acreditarán puntos de INAP.
Los documentos audiovisuales, tales como las películas, los programas radiales y televisivos, las grabaciones sonoras y de vídeo, contienen los registros principales de los siglos XX y XXI. Por su capacidad de trascender las fronteras lingüísticas y culturales, atraer inmediatamente la vista y el oído, a las personas alfabetizadas y a las analfabetas, los documentos audiovisuales han transformado la sociedad al convertirse en un complemento permanente de los registros escritos tradicionales. Sin embargo, son extremadamente delicados y gran parte del patrimonio audiovisual del mundo ya se ha perdido irremediablemente a causa de la negligencia, la destrucción, el deterioro y la falta de recursos, competencias y estructuras, empobreciendo de esta forma la memoria de la humanidad. En este contexto, la Conferencia General aprobó en 2005 la conmemoración de un Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual como mecanismo para concienciar a todo el público sobre la necesidad de tomar medidas urgentes y reconocer la importancia de los documentos audiovisuales como parte integrante de la identidad nacional.

Es por esto que el Departamento de Documentos de Cine, Audio y Video invita a participar de este encuentro a quienes se abocan a tareas de comunicación institucional, producción de contenidos audiovisuales, archivos y público en general. En esta ocasión, se desarrollarán diversas actividades que iniciarán con las palabras del Director del Archivo General de la Nación Emilio Perina.

Además, escucharemos las palabras de Mariana Avramo, responsable del área audiovisual del Archivo General, entre otros profesionales de la archivística. En la primera mesa, contaremos con la presencia del documentalista Marcelo Goyeneche, el filósofo Gustavo Varela y los investigadores Ángeles Ceruti y Roberto Martínez.

En la segunda mesa de debate, participan el Archivo Nacional de la Memoria, Florencia Gear y Lucia Albizuri de la Secretaría de Patrimonio Cultural y Alejandro Javier Nigri de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Por la tarde, se brindarán talleres teóricos prácticos previa inscripción.

The UNESCO World Day of Audiovisual Heritage highlights the fact that many audiovisual media are under threat of decay and disintegration. The archives preserve what has influenced and inspired us. Our aim is not only to look into the distance. Eddie Constantine – who would have been 100 years old on 29th October 2017 – spent the final years of his life in Wiesbaden and is one of the city’s most prominent names.

Amikor Gagarin még iskolába járt
A szovjet film propaganda szédítő világa
27 October 2017
Open Society Archives at Central European University (OSA)
,
Budapest
,
Hungary

Az OSA az audiovizuális örökség világnapja alkalmából filmarchiválási előadást és vetítést rendez, ahol egy Budapesten kallódó filmgyűjtemény sorsát és feldolgozását mutatjuk be.
A rendszerváltást követően a Szovjet Tudomány és Kultúra Háza mozijában rekedt 110 propagandafilm, amit Geréb Anna filmtörténész mentett meg az enyészettől. Az OSA Archívum 2016-ban digitalizálta, feldolgozta a filmeket, majd elérhetővé is tette az interneten.

A filmek zöme az 1970-es és 80-as években készült. Ezek a történelem és a tudomány szovjet propagandaverzióját sulykolják: a Szovjetunió maga a földi Kánaán. A filmek a legsablonosabb propaganda narráció mellett az avantgárd és az újhullám formanyelvét használják.

Hogyan és mit látott és láttatott a brezsnyevi években egy szovjet filmkészítő? És mit hallgatott el? Az Amikor Gagarin még iskolába járt című rendezvényen egy eddig kevéssé ismert filmgyűjteményt tár a közönség elé az OSA két munkatársa, Zádori Zsuzsa és Oksana Sarkisova. Hogyan vált a 16 mm-es celluloid filmekből online video gyűjtemény? Kik is ezek a mesterek, a politikai rezsimet kiszolgáló filmesek, és mitől nézhetőek mégis ezek a propagandafilmek?

És kik néztek önként szovjet filmet, pláne propagandafilmet, amikor a pesti Gorkij, a szovjet filmek mozija ásított az ürességtől, s 1973-tól ment a Vígszínházban a Popfesztivál musical változata; Illés, Omega, Piramis, Cseh Tamás, Kex, Syrius, na meg Beatrice koncerteken tombolt az ifjúság? Godard, Antonioni és Ridley Scott filmjeit játszották a mozik! Hogyan nézett ki a Szovjet Kultúra Háza, milyen volt egy vetítés hangulata? Vendégünk Geréb Anna filmtörténész, a gyűjtemény létrehozója és megmentője.

FILMVETÍTÉS 16 MM-ES FILMRŐL:

 

Amikor Gagarin még iskolába járt (szovjet, 1983, színes, magyar hang, 27’)
A 2. világháborús pusztítást követően a Szovjetuniió „főnixmadárként támadt fel. Beköszöntött a béke és jólét kora.” A film a szovjet valóság helyett a vágyálmokat mutatja. A terrort, a pangást, a nyomort, a társbérletek világát, az alkoholizmust és a kényszermunkatáborok valóságát a filmben ne keressük.

Hazám a szeretet varázslatos földje (szovjet, 1981, f/f, magyar hang, 30’)
A „szovjet hétköznapok békés és harmonikus világát” mutatja be a film. Itt, a filmkockákon virágzik a mezőgazdaság, az ipari termelés, a sport és a művészetek. Az egyéni és közösségi fejlődést, na meg a szerelmet támogatja és táplálja a dicsőséges Szovjetunió.

Feldolgozás: Yulia Karpova, Oksana Sarkisova, Zádori Zsuzsanna
Digitalizálás: Krizbai Zoltán
Videó utómunka: Darius Krolikowski
Katalógus szerkesztő: Hegedűs Judit
Webes megjelenítés: Bóné József Gábor, Dani János, Tímári Károly

Ez a bemutató az OSA Archívum audiovizuális gyűjtési akciójának meghirdetése is egyben. Célunk a hidegháború és a létező szocializmus még kallódó amatőr filmjeinek, videóinak és hanganyagainak felgyűjtése, megőrzése, digitalizálása és szakszerű kutathatóvá tétele. Szeretnénk elérni, hogy a fölöslegessé váló mozgókép és hangfelvétel ne a szemétben végezzék, hanem kortörténeti dokumentumként új otthonra találjanak egy kutatható gyűjteményben.

Az OSA Archívum e rendezvénnyel is fel szeretné hívni a figyelmet a szigorú szakmai archiválás és gyűjteménymegóvás fontosságára. Egyben arra is, hogy ez csak fél munka, amennyiben ezt nem követi a megosztás, hozzáférhetővé tétel. Az OSA ezzel az immár online is elérhető szovjet propagandafilm gyűjteménnyel a közpénzből készült filmek, videók és hangfelvételek közösségi megosztásának fontosságára, ingyenes kutathatóságára hívja fel a figyelmet.
A 16 mm-es celluloid filmtekercseket kézbe lehet venni, kesztyűt az OSA ad!

OPEN-HOUSE DAY FOR FUTURE FILMMAKERS

Republic of Macedonia

This year Kinoteka na Makedonija decided to focus on the future film professionals and to apply the Discover, Remember and Share theme as a strategy to raise their awareness for the importance of archiving and safeguarding their audiovisual works. The idea is to have an open-house day for the film students who will learn firsthand where their works are archived and safeguarded, what are the advantages of depositing their works in a film archive and how is this audiovisual material later shared, discovered and re-discovered by new audience.

Couple of year ago on a panel discussion about the necessity and the growing costs of safeguarding the AV heritage, organized on the occasion for the UNESCO’s World Day of Audiovisual Heritage, the participants agreed that a worrying number of film professionals are not aware of the challenges of archiving the film materials and are not considering the future of their works. This category especially includes the younger generations of filmmakers who grew up in fast-paced world where it is difficult to anticipate the future of one’s audiovisual work once it is released.

The open-house day will foster communication between the film students, our future clients, and the Kinoteka personnel, and introduce the goals, activities, projects and programmes of a film archive dedicated to preserving and safeguarding of the audiovisual heritage for future generations.

As part of World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 'Ulu'ulu would like to share our archival film screening "Documenting Activism: The Early Days of the Native Hawaiian Movement" on November 5th at the Hawai'i International Film Festival, a partnership we have maintained since 2013. HIFF is unique in discovering features, documentaries and shorts from Asia made by Asians, films about the Pacific made by Pacific Islanders, and films made by Hawai'i filmmakers that present Hawai'i in a culturally accurate way (HIFF).

'Ulu'ulu preserves the moving image history of Hawai'i to honor the past and ensure its availability for future generations. This year we honor those who courageously documented the early days of the Native Hawaiian movement while recognizing how these images are being used today. We will screen a segment of the documentary "Mo'olelo o ka 'Aina" (1984), produced by KITV, followed by newly preserved raw archival footage from the Protect Kaho'olawe 'Ohana collection.

The Protect Kaho'olawe 'Ohana was a grassroots organization founded four decades ago that brought attention to the island of Kaho'olawe and its importance as a site for Hawaiian traditions. The group fought for the respect of the land and it continues today as an example of Aloha 'Aina.

After the archival film screening there will be a panel discussion with the filmmakers who captured the early movement and discuss how the footage has impacted the next generation of documentarians and activists.

Panelists: Kevin Coates (filmmaker), Stephen Morse (filmmaker), Joan Lander (filmmaker), Matt Yamashita (filmmaker), Janel Quirante (Head Archivist, 'Ulu'ulu)

La Cineteca Nacional de México abrió sus puertas en enero de 1974 como la institución encargada de preservar el patrimonio cultural cinematográfico del país. En 2011 dio inicio a un ambicioso proyecto de remodelación y ampliación de sus instalaciones, que incluyó la construcción de un laboratorio de restauración digital, con tecnología de punta, gracias al cual podemos ahora descubrir, recordar y compartir las joyas de nuestro acervo.
Para esta edición del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual se han seleccionado cortos de 1931 a 1985 que narran diversos momentos de la vida en México. La proyección digital inicia con un curioso corto a todo color de 1942: Extravaganza mexicana del pintor jalisciense Juan José Segura. Realizada dos años antes de Los tres caballeros de Walt Disney y cuyos colores se asemejan entre sí.
Los Hnos. Rodríguez presentan, es un corto sonoro de 1931 en el que los Rodríguez hicieron gala de su novedoso invento entrevistando en vivo a estrellas mexicanas como Dolores del Río en el marco del Gran Festival de Caridad de Los Ángeles.
El noticiero Información Gráfica No. 1, de Gregorio Castillo (1937), muestra al presidente Lázaro Cárdenas recorriendo el país, en tren, en auto y a caballo, además de ciertos aspectos de la vida en México como la elección de “La Flor más bella del Ejido” en Santa Anita, o la visita a México del presidente de Filipinas el Dr. Quezón.
Otros cortos que forman parte de la muestra son: Pátzcuaro. Lago de ensueño, de Ezequiel Carrasco (1935) que nos remite a un mundo hoy perdido: el de ese tranquilo lago antes del boom turístico. Iztaccihuatl (filmado en los años 40) proveniente del acervo del Club de Exploraciones de México. Y, [Cordelería San Juan], de 1953, un ejemplo de los cortometrajes publicitarios de la iniciativa privada, que nos muestra el funcionamiento de una empresa henequera en Yucatán.
Y, para cerrar, el Compendio cinematográfico (1985), un recorrido nostálgico por el proceso para hacer cine cuando la película era analógica y las salas tenían enormes proyectores. Un viaje por los oficios, equipos y técnicas que eran necesarios para hacer un filme, desde la idea hasta su proyección comercial.

The same night, TFI will also pay tribute to its generous sponsors of digital restoration projects and donors of artifacts and equipment. The guests and attendees will witness the rebirth of this precious classic, and show support for the preservation of Taiwan’s film heritage.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 screening's been a long time coming.  Lost for half a century, 500 films were discovered buried under a sub-arctic swimming pool in a remote part of Canada.  Dawson City: Frozen Time is a feature film that quite literally pieces together history and features rare footage from the early silent era.  Filmmaker Bill Morrison joins us with archivists and conservation specialists for a post screening insight into this scrupulous and fascinating process.


The screening is one of the events which marks the 40th anniversary of the North West Film Archive in 2017.  The NWFA is part of Manchester Metropolitan University - a member of FIAF - and one of the network of UK regional and national film archives.

World Day for Audio Visual Heritage Celebration

Irish Film Institute

Dublin
,
Ireland

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.

The BFI, Learning on Screen and Kingston School of Art are supporting a workshop exploring the creative reuse of archive material in higher education, in a morning session preceding the annual BFI Student Open Day. The event will launch a new scheme providing student filmmakers at UK universities with access to archive material from the BFI National Archive and will be beneficial to students and educators interested in working with archive content on course-related film and media projects.


The new scheme follows a successful pilot at Kingston University earlier this year, where 12 films from the BFI National Archive were creatively reused to inspire student video essays and short documentaries under an educational license. The pilot is discussed in a recent article in Learning on Screen’s Viewfinder magazine: http://bufvc.ac.uk/articles/opening-up-the-archives

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"
Celebrating UNESCO's "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage"

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?
