EQZE | THE SCHOOL OF THE THREE TENSES OF CINEMA


Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola is an international centre for thinking, research, experimental practice and pedagogical innovation based around the past, present and future of cinema.


Created and financed by Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola is opening in 2017 with a passionately regenerative spirit: its ultimate purpose is not to train technical staff by following traditional standardised training models, but to encourage the emergence of filmmakers with a comprehensive vision of cinema who are able to produce new (working, conceptual, creative, professional) realities on film.

EQZE is taking shape based on the fields of knowledge of the three agents that are taking part in its conceptualisation: the Basque Film Archive, San Sebastián International Film Festival and the Tabakalera cultural project. It is based in Tabakalera International Centre for Contemporary Culture where these institutions are also located.


The institutions involved in the development of the School are not teaching institutions but film institutions. This is why the School that they are promoting is also basically a film project: an idea of cinema that is taking shape as an educational project. This is the reason why the EQZE does not have a range of training programmes, but a single educational project made up of three postgraduate programmes.


EQZE | FILM PRESERVATION STUDIES


The course poses the (theoretical, technical and ethical) dilemmas for students that cinema raises as a material and immaterial heritage. As well as tackling all those aspects related to identifying images and sounds on photochemical, magnetic and digital media, the speciality provides the tools
for managing existing collections and creating new ones. The course also provides access to protocols and procedures for revising and restoring materials, using both mechanical and digital tools, which offers genuine practical experience in the laboratory.


Film Preservation studies are carried out in constant interaction with the work at the Basque Film Archive, which provides students with a real-life experience with a film archive officially certified by the FIAF.
