2019 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Engage the Past Through Sounds and Images"

Add your event at the end of this page!

The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - 27 October - is key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honor audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that safeguard our heritage for future generations. Around the world audiovisual archives join together annually on this day to celebrate their work with events that not only highlight the vulnerability of these valuable materials, but also to celebrate the often, unheralded work of the institutions that provide protection and preservation, ensuring their availability in the future.

This year the theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is "Engage the Past Through Sound and Images ".

Here is the CCAAA Board's official Statement about this year's theme:

Our collective histories are often captured on film, video, audio or digital formats, and through these, we engage to learn about the past and to share our own histories with future generations. Increasingly recordings serve as our memories and tell the stories that constitute our cultural heritage. In recognition of the preservation efforts of the thousands of archivists, librarians and caretakers around the world who care for these valuable collections, this year’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage again celebrates their dedication and expertise. Without the knowledge and devotion that is required to preserve, digitize and provide access, large portions of our cultural heritage would disappear to be lost forever.

Yet many conditions (technical, political, social, financial and more) threaten the survival of these audiovisual materials. We see these losses on a daily basis due to human error, as in the case of the most recently revealed decade-old Universal fire which resulted in the loss of thousands of musical masters, a massive portion of American music history. All too often catastrophes occur, as well, through the rapidly growing number of natural disasters, through lack of proper care (due to benign neglect or lack of knowledge and resources), and, of course, through political turmoil and war. Whatever the circumstances that threaten our cultural heritage, these events remind us that in order to protect and to preserve this material for future generations, skills, knowledge and resources are required. Our moving image and sound recordings hold our memories, ideas, and histories.

While many institutions dedicate substantial resources to providing proper archival storage and to continuously reformatting to the latest and greatest digital formats, some situations are less fortunate; nevertheless, the end goal for all of us is to be able to provide these materials to the audiences who will learn from them, engage with them, appreciate them and embrace them. Whether we are able to broadcast these stories through television, radio, the internet or on the big screen in our cinemas, our global efforts to share these sounds and images is paramount. 

On 27 October, please join us in celebrating our audio-visual heritage, and assist us to acknowledge the work done every day to preserve our stories so that they will endure for future generations. Also, we encourage you to share these films, audio recordings, television histories and other audiovisual objects with the world to engage our audiences  and allow them to remember and discover our past, including its secrets.

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 2019 World Day on and around 27 October, but also to share the information about their particular events, by filling the quick-and-easy form at the bottom of this dedicated CCAAA page.

United States

The UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage marks an occasion for libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage institutions around the world to join together in celebrating the vital expressions of cultural identity and historical significance found in their film and audiovisual collections. As part of this annual day of recognition and advocacy, FSU Libraries will join an international cohort of institutions in showcasing its rich and unique materials with a pop-up exhibit on the Main Floor of Strozier Library on Thursday, October 24th.

Running from 10am - 4pm, this interactive exhibit will feature a variety of legacy audiovisual formats and technology culled from Special Collections & Archives and Technology & Digital Scholarship. The exhibit will also include a looping video installation featuring films preserved by FSU Libraries--films chronicling important campus events like The Great Westcott Fire of 1969, moments of familial bliss and beauty as found in the Means Family Collection, and great triumphs of FSU football, Flying High Circus, and the Tarpon Club Synchronized Swimming Team. Preservation Librarian, Hannah Davis, and Resident Media Librarian, Dave Rodriguez, will be on-hand to chat with visitors and answer questions about FSU’s unique collections, preservation efforts, and the challenges and complexities inherent to the stewardship of these materials.

On Sunday 27 Oct. at 15:00, Rommy Albers (senior curator of Eye) will introduce the reconstructed version of the Dutch film Zeemansvrouwen (1930). This film by Henk Kleinman was meant to be the first Dutch sound film, but due to technical complications became the last Dutch silent film. In 2003, Eye Filmmuseum undertook a radical restoration and reconstruction to restore the film and to add a new soundtrack, including the dialogues. 

This event is a collaboration between Eye Filmmuseum and the Amsterdam City Archive and is part of the exhibition 'Modern Perspectives', and is open to all visitors of the exhibition.

The Film Heritage Festival
24-27 October 2019
Kino Arsenal

Alongside digitally restored films, the fourth edition of Film:ReStored will primarily focus on film sound. Historical sound formats represent a special challenge in terms of restoration. But the latest digital technology makes it possible to come as close as possible to the original sound.

We will introduce new scanning procedures and examples from film history showing how sound has been used–ranging from shellac records to four-channel magnetic tapes, and from Die Jagd nach der Million (The Chase After Millions, GER 1930, d: Max Obal) to The Flying Dutchman (GDR 1964, d: Joachim Herz). How does sound editing change a work? And how should different versions be assessed?

Audio descriptions are now an integral component of many DCPs, as film heritage should be made available barrier-free. For this reason, the festival is also dedicated to inclusive access to (historical) films. We will review and discuss exemplary audio descriptions as well as the quality standards and challenges presented by silent and experimental films.

As in the past, this year’s guests from international FIAF archives will discuss their digitization strategies and projects: The Polish National Film Archive (FINA) reports on the "Nitrofilm project"; the Kinemathek dedicates itself to Hans Richter's experimental silent films and the Filmmuseum Potsdam together with the University of Zurich looks into historical magnetic tape technologies.

Ciné-conférence : Pourquoi, une cinémathèque de films amateurs ?

31 October 2019

74290 Veyrier-du-Lac

A la Cinémathèque des Pays de Savoie et de l’Ain, nous vous proposons une conférence unique intitulée Le cinéma amateur c'est quoi, présentée par Michel Najar, membre fondateur de la cinémathèque dans le cadre de la Journée Mondiale du Patrimoine audiovisuel de l'Unesco, et de l’exposition Instantanés d'une cinémathèque.
 

Préhistoire et débats. Avant la constitution de la cinémathèque un débat occupe les membres fondateurs : quels critères retenir pour les dépôts de films ? Accepte-t-on les films professionnels ? Quel périmètre territorial/patrimonial est concerné par notre "cueillette" ? Les départements, la région, les Alpes ? La question des locaux, de l'espace de stockage... nous amène à nous limiter. 
 

Le choix, la voie royale. La rencontre des films amateurs, l'extrême variété des sujets, des auteurs, de la qualité aussi nous amène à nous focaliser sur les "petits formats". Globalement trois types de films : les films de famille, les films de "notables" (prêtres, instituteurs, responsables d'entreprises), les films semi-professionnels d'amateurs ambitieux (camera-clubs).
 

La valorisation de ces films est un enjeu d'importance : esthétique, éthique, économique, juridique. Le film d'amateur est une matière première. Pour le meilleur et pour le moins bon...Mais, à la différence des matières premières, une fois utilisée, l'image, dans les rayons de la cinémathèque, demeure prête à de nouvelles interprétations... et elle peut toujours être consommée brute.
 

Durée 1h environ - Entrée libre - 37 places - Pot à l'issue - réservation conseillée au 04 50 23 51 09 ou à contact@letelepherique.org

DER OCHSENKRIEG (DE 1920, 68 mins)
Cinema Screening 8 pm

Germany

Franz Osten's adaptation of a novel by Ludwig Ganghofer is set in the Bavarian Alps in the 15th century. Lambert, son of a clerk, and farmer's daugther Jula fall in love, while their fathers enter in a bitter argument over some land. When the situation escalates into violence, other farmers start a bloody uprising against the sovereign.

 DER OCHSENKRIEG was the first film to be shot at the Geiselgasteig studios of the Bavaria Film GmbH. On the occasion of the centenary of the foundation of the company, DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum has carried out an elaborate restoration of the film.

 The new musical score was written by Hans-Jürgen Buchner, member of the Bavarian cult band Haindling.

Cinema Screening 5:30 pm
27 October 2019

Wiesbaden
,
Germany

Helmut Käutner's HIMMEL OHNE STERNE was the first film to deal with the inner German border. The fact that Käutner, who could never visit the GDR during his life, chose to be as unpolitical and neutral as possible in his film, was appreciated neither in west nor east Germany.

 When factory worker Anna from east Germany and border guard Karl from Bavaria fall in love, the only place where they can meet is an abandoned train station between the borders. When Anna finally tries to flee the GDR with her son things take a tragic turn.

 On the occasion of the UNESCO World Day of Audiovisual Heritage, we present two newly digitised films from our film archive. HIMMEL OHNE STERNE was digitised from the original film negative. The digitisation was supported by the funding programme "Filmerbe des Bundes".

Based on the collections of the Museum of Cinema, as well as different archives and Catalan collections (MUHBA, AHCB, MNACTEC, Rocamora Foundation), this exhibition wants to claim this lesser-known facet but of great influence on the professional activity of Francesc Dalmau (1810-1886), who was the first modern optician of the city of Barcelona. This is an opportunity to make the visitor discover the visual universe in which the spectators of the nineteenth century were immersed. A rich and fascinating universe in resources and expressive forms, many of which are still fully present in our contemporary visual culture.

As part of the WeAre#EuropeForCulture initiative, CRDI created a participatory virtual exhibition in Girona, dedicated to amateur sports. This project is funded by the European Commission, within the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
The virtual exhibition focuses on amateur sports in the city of Girona, in the year of the centenary of the GEiEG association. An innovative application will allow to explore the digitized images through an interactive system that will be available to the visitor. For the realization of the exhibition, we used the material selected from the workshop that took place on September 24 at CRDI facilities, in which several people linked to GEiEG worked on the contents of this exhibition.

The workshop aims to involve people in the process of valuing their own family photographs in two different ways: conservation and memories. As a result of this workshop, we will create an audiovisual in order to explain the methodology on how to involve people interested in the photographic heritage. The workshop will be drived by Susanna Muriel, a training professional specialized in family photography.
This activity is part of the European Kaleidoscope project in which CRDI participates. The aim of the project is linking heritage photography with new technologies, in order to discover life in the fifties through the iconographic legacy and at the same time to enhance the citizen interest in heritage.

Eye takes part in UNESCO’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on 27 October. The day is organised annually since 2005 to highlight the importance of preservation and restoration of film. Admission to Eye’s permanent presentation Panorama is free. Panorama presents the history of film in an interactive way designed to appeal to young and old, devoting special attention to pre-cinema devices. At 15.00 in Cinema 2 there will also be a free screening of two short films from 1912 and 1913 that were considered lost, with an introduction and live musical accompaniment.
UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, 27 October, Eye Filmmuseum, IJpromenade 1, Amsterdam, eyefilm.nl

- The Panorama on Eye’s ground floor is a permanent presentation of film devices that mark major moments in the history of cinema. The display includes a so-called Mitchell camera that was used to make classic Hollywood films and a Mutoscope showing Charlie Chaplin’s The Waiter. The presentation also takes you past 360°, a space in which you are surrounded by almost one hundred film clips from Eye’s collection, mini cinemas with comfortable three seaters, and the FlipBook and the Green Screen, where you can make a ‘thumb cinema’ and play a role in a film scene. The Panorama also offers unique pre-cinema devices and a film quiz especially for this day. Panorama is open from 10.00-19.00h; special programme from 11.00-17.00h.

- Free screening: In 2018 Eye received an extraordinary gift from a private collector which included a number of film cans. Eye researchers were able to identify the contents as two films by Alfred Machin from 1912 and 1913 that were considered lost. The two short films are De droppel bloed (also known as The Red Stain, FR/NL, 1913) and L'histoire de Minna Claessens (BE, 1912). Eye curator Elif Rongen will talk about the detective work that is involved before collection specialists are able to establish what it is they have before them.

15.00 De droppel bloed and L’histoire de Minna Claessens with live musical accompaniment by Martin de Ruiter


- hunt, film quiz, remarkable cinema devices: There is a hunt throughout the entire museum building for children from the age of 7. The hunt is packed with optical illusions, fun assignments and a quiz. Collect your guide and pencil from the front desk and go on a journey of discovery at Eye. The answers are to be found on eyefilm.nl/kids. Eye’s collection specialists will be present in the Panorama to test your film knowledge and to show you a number of special devices from our collection, such as the smallest projector ever made (the Micro-Ciné) and a hand-operated film projector (Walturdaw).

Film Screening: "Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom"
Celebrating UNESCO's "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage"

In celebration of UNESCO's "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage", the Hong Kong Film Archive is presenting a newly digitally-restored masterpiece, Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom.  The film holds a special place in the history of Hong Kong cinema.  Released in 1959 at the height of the 1950s golden era, the film was directed by Lee Tit -  one of the luminaries of that era.  The 1950s was also a particularly fruitful period for Cantonese opera films and Lee rode on the surge, working with Sin Fung Ming Opera Troupe to reach an even higher artistic level in its superb integration of Cantonese opera and film.  Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom was written by Tong Tik-sang, one of the greatest librettists in Cantonese opera history, who elevated the medium by incorporating classic literature into his works.


Butterfly and Red Pear Blossom is also one of the masterpieces in the Archive’s flagship programme ‘100 Must-See Hong Kong Movies’. The restored version was premiered at the Grand Theatre of Hong Kong Cultural Centre on 4 September 2019 and will be screened again at the Cinema of the Archive on 27 October, the 'World Day for Audiovisual Heritage', to raise public awareness of the importance of preserving Hong Kong's audio-visual heritage.

Home Movie Day and Night
The 24-Hour Marathon
27-28 October 2019
Online
,

Home Movie Day and Night: The 24-Hour Marathon is a webcast that will take place on October 27th, 2019 and will coincide with the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. A full day of home movies will be compiled with home movies from every time zone.

On October 27th, home movies will be webcast online on YouTube for the full 24-hours of the day. As the day progresses, viewers will be able to follow along with the program as it moves around the world. The project manager will work with a team of curators who will compile hour-long segments from archives, collections, and individuals showing home movies from places throughout the time zone. The curatorial team will communicate with archives from partner organizations within each region to produce a video program that showcases the range of home movies and the preservation efforts that have been undertaken by the archives. The end result will be a monumental collage film that will highlight the differences and similarities among home movie practices across different cultures. In addition the webcast, venues will be recruited to host screenings of the video (either the full 24 hours or significant portions of it).

Curators and contributors to Home Movie Day and Night: The 24-Hour Marathon have been encouraged to find films that show how home movies depict life in places where they were created and what they can show about the individuals and cultures that inspired them. They should show how amateur films can be both intimate and global at the same time—showing what is unique to a place, but also universal. As we move around the world during the webcast, viewers will move through time, crisscrossing the 20th and 21st centuries experiencing each moment as it occurred.

Une belle industrie neuchâteloise (1929) : copie restaurée numérique
28 October 2019
Cinématographe, Casino de Montbenon
,
Lausanne
,
Suisse

Fleuron de l'industrie neuchâteloise jusque dans les années 1970, l'entreprise Dubied, fondée en 1867 à Couvet, recourut tôt et souvent au cinéma. On sait notamment qu'Emile Cohl réalisa, au début des années 1920, quatre films publicitaires vantant les machines à tricoter neuchâteloises, alors exportées dans le monde entier. Une belle industrie neuchâteloise fait ainsi partie d'un ensemble de films 35 et 16mm à visée publicitaire, mais également commémorative ou didactique. Ce corpus illustre l'importance de Dubied à un niveau cantonal et national, au plan économique, social et identitaire. Séance présentée par Aude Joseph, responsable du Département audiovisuel de la Bibliothèque de la Ville de La Chaux-de-Fonds, et accompagnée au piano par Enrico Camponovo.
