It begins with a facilitated discussion about photographs in the archives, the forms they take, their historical value and how they relate to other kinds of archives. Subsequent sessions cover the characteristrics of different photographic images and the processes which created them, the environmental conditions and packaging needed for preservation, copyright considerations, how to catalogue photographs and plan digitisation projects.Managing Photographs in the Archives is a brand new course for 2018 which has been developed by Margaret Crockett and Janet Foster, Directors of the Archive-Skills Consultancy, in association with Jessamy Harvey.

Contact:   info@fiafnet.org 

For the third year in a row, FIAF and the Cinémathèque française are joining forces to offer a short training course aimed primarily at professionals in FIAF archives and beyond. The theme of this specialized course is “Programming Film Heritage”, and will once again be taught by experienced professionals from our sector, most of them programmers in film archives affiliated to FIAF. The course will take place at the Cinémathèque française on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 March 2018 (two full days), just before the start of Toute la mémoire du monde, the International Festival of Restored Film hosted by the Cinémathèque française (7-11 March 2018).Following the success of the first two Winter Schools, the organizers thought that there was still a lot to discuss and learn about the topic of programming film heritage, and that a third course could introduce topics not or little covered before, as well as explore further those already covered in the last two years. Special attention will be paid to programming silent cinema and musical accompaniment, legal/rights issues, the relationship between “curating” and “programming”, film projection, and portraits of experienced programmers. We will once again aim to offer a carefully balanced combination of theoretical lectures and more practical sessions. Students will also have more opportunities to exchange with one another and with the trainers. We believe that this new course can be of interest both to students who already attended the Winter School, and new ones.


Confirmed international speakers will include Jay Weissberg (Programmer, Le Giornate del Cinema Muto, Pordenone); Michael Loebenstein (Director, Austrian Film Museum, Vienna), Elif Rongen (Curator, EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, and festival programmer), Bryony Dixon (Curator of Silent Film, BFI), Annabelle Shaw (Copyright & Licensing Manager, BFI), Antti Alanen (programmer, KAVI, Helsinki), Serge Bromberg (Lobster Films), and Massimo Benvegnú, the new Head of the FIAF Programming and Access to Collections Commission (PACC).


The course will be taught in French and in English, and simultaneous translation will be provided for all sessions. A completion certificate will be handed to students at the end of the training.


The registration fee will be 140.00€ (169.40€ inc. VAT) per person for employees of FIAF-affiliated institutions and registered students, and 180.00€ (217.80€ inc. VAT) for non-FIAF professionals. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, but a number of places will be reserved for employees of FIAF archives. Note that this fee includes:


Lunch on both days of the Winter School, and refreshments throughout the training,
Free access to festival screenings (except the Masterclasses, the opening and closing nights, and the all-night screening) on the premises of the Cinémathèque française from 7-11 March 2017 (subject to availability).
Participants are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, but a list of nearby hotels and travel information will be available shortly.


If you have any questions about the next programming Winter School, please contact the FIAF Secretariat.

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.
