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.

Το Πολιτιστικό Ίδρυμα Ομίλου Πειραιώς (ΠΙΟΠ) και η Ελληνική Αρχειακή Εταιρεία (ΕΑΕ) διοργανώνουν τη δεύτερη κατά σειρά ημερίδα με τίτλο «Οπτικοακουστικά Αρχεία: ζητήματα διαχείρισης και πρόσβασης», την Τετάρτη 30 Οκτωβρίου (ώρα 10:00-14:30), στο Ιστορικό Αρχείο του Ιδρύματος, στον Ταύρο.

Η συνάντηση πραγματοποιείται με την ευκαιρία της Παγκόσμιας Ημέρας Οπτικοακουστικής Κληρονομιάς, όπως αυτή καθιερώθηκε από τη Γενική Διάσκεψη της UNESCO, για την ανάδειξη της οπτικοακουστικής αρχειακής κληρονομιάς ως μέσου καταγραφής της ανθρώπινης δράσης και διάσωσης της ιστορικής μνήμης.

Η συνεχόμενη εξέλιξη των σύγχρονων τεχνολογιών και ο αυξανόμενος όγκος των οπτικοακουστικών τεκμηρίων δημιουργούν τεράστιες προκλήσεις για τους φορείς διατήρησής τους και καθιστούν επιτακτική μια σειρά πολιτικών σχετικά με την αρχειοθέτηση, διατήρηση, αξιοποίηση και πρόσβαση στις συλλογές, με δεδομένη και τη μετάβαση από αναλογικές σε ψηφιακές μορφές. Υπαρκτός είναι και ο κίνδυνος της απαξίωσης αντίστοιχων συλλογών υλικού σε φιλμ, ταινίες και δίσκους για λόγους οικονομικούς ή λόγω υποτίμησης της σημασίας τους και της ταχείας τεχνολογικής εξέλιξης των μέσων ανάγνωσης. Παρόμοιες συνθήκες δημιουργούν την ανάγκη η αρχειακή κοινότητα να εστιάσει στο ζήτημα της ευθραυστότητας των ιστορικών ηχογραφήσεων και κινούμενων εικόνων.

Οι διοργανωτές φιλοδοξούν η συνάντηση να αποτελέσει άλλη μία ευκαιρία για αντίστοιχους φορείς να παρουσιάσουν πρακτικές και να μοιραστούν προβληματισμούς, ώστε να εμπεδωθεί ο διάλογος σε θέματα αξιοποίησης οπτικοακουστικών συλλογών και διασφάλισης της πρόσβασης σε αυτές. Το πρόγραμμα της ημερίδας συγκροτείται από παρουσιάσεις περιεχομένου και πολιτικών

διατήρησης και πρόσβασης συναφών φορέων καθώς και την εμπειρία ερευνητών και δημιουργών που αξιοποίησαν σχετικό υλικό.

Η συμμετοχή είναι δωρεάν. Για την εγγραφή των συμμετεχόντων θα τηρηθεί σειρά προτεραιότητας (τηλ. 210 3418011, Δευτ.-Παρ. 9:00-17:00).

VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture offers an international platform for outstanding academic research and archival reflection on television as an important part of our European cultural heritage. The journal is open to many disciplinary perspectives on European television – including television history, media studies, media sociology, cultural studies and television studies.

This 15th edition of the open access online journal explores the many ways in which television’s material heritage can be repurposed or exploited, bringing to the fore new emergent uses for this older medium. Television’s material culture offers a starting point into our exploration of television’s current status. Artefacts and material traces are imbued with social relations. They unearth for us the web of users, uses and meanings associated to television, both in its historical and present form.

The issue was co-edited by John Ellis and Dana Mustata and published online on October 27, 2019, in honour of the World Day of Audiovisual Heritage!

Gartenberg Media Enterprises presents a rare audio clip from a field recording during John F. Kennedy’s 1960 Presidential Campaign. In his remarks, JFK encapsulates William Faulkner’s famous observation that "The past is never dead. It's not even past" as he speaks to the enduring social values of the Democratic party, versus those of the Republican party in the United States. Sixty years later this divide between the two political parties is even more profoundly evident.

Today is the #AudiovisualHeritageDay launched by UNESCO in 1980 in recognition of the archives of audiovisual heritage about the lives and cultures of people around the world. The main objective of the day was to recommend the protection and preservation of this heritage. World Day offers an opportunity to raise awareness about the need for urgent measures and to recognize the importance of audio-visual documents and materials.

We here at the Street Museum invite all our fans and followers to participate in the day in a simple and practical way to remove dust from your personal archive and re-view and enjoy it and perhaps digitize and share with friends as we do here every day.

Taiwan Film Institute (affiliated to FIAF, SEAPAVAA
Together, In Time
A Celebration of World Audiovisual Heritage & the 40th Anniversary of Taiwan Film Institute
25-26 October 2019
Spot Huashan Cinema
,
Taipei
,
Taiwan

As the 2019 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage coincides with the 40th anniversary of Taiwan Film Institute's establishment, our celebration this year is especially monumental. From a small film library established in 1978, Taiwan Film Institute (TFI) has expanded throughout the years to what is now an institute dedicated to the preservation, restoration and promotion of Taiwan cinema. From 2019 on, we are expected to take on even more responsibilities, such as adding television and radio materials to our vast collection.

To celebrate our milestone year and raise awareness of the importance of preserving audiovisual heritage, TFI organized screenings of three films from October 25 to 26 at Taipei's Spot Huashan Cinema in a series of events titled 'Together, In Time.' "The Homecoming Pilgrimage of Dajia Mazu", our newly restored classic originally filmed in the 1970s, was screened after a press conference. The TV documentary details the religious phenomenom of tens of thousands of people in procession for over 10 days, following Mazu (sea goddess) for over 400 kilometers. The annual pilgrimage made UNESCO's world intangible cultural heritage list in 2008. The TV documentary was restored in 2K from its release print, and has undergone multiple challenges due to its severely faded colors.

Hou Hsiao-hsien's "A City of Sadness" was also screened on this occasion. Released in 1989, "A City of Sadness" was the first Taiwanese film to garner the highest honor at Venice Film Festival. Its critical success not only put Taiwan's New Cinema on the world cinema map, Hou's mastery in using long takes also enriched the cinematic language. A 35mm release print was screened on October 26. Scratches and stains were visible throughout the screening, reminding the audience that films do deteriorate with time.

Last on the list was the WP of "Archiving Time", a documentary produced by TFI about the work of our vault employees. Filmed over two years, "Archiving Time" takes the audience through how films are acquired, preserved and restored at our vaults and restoration lab. Two screenings were held on October 25, one for the public, the other for the past and present employees of TFI. The screenings were not only a call for attention to the urgency of our work, they were also a tribute to members of TFI who have dedicated much of their lives to this great cause.

Aside from past and present members of TFI, government officials, filmmakers and cinephiles were also in attendance. TFI's director, Dr. Wang Chun-Chi took the opportunity to urge the audience to join our efforts in preserving Taiwan's audiovisual heritage, e.g. by donating to TFI films preserved in poor conditions. Dr. Wang pointed out that much of the history and culture of the 20th and 21th century are kept in audiovisual forms. Therefore, it is essential to safeguard our audiovisual heritage, and it requires the assistance and awareness of all people. 'Together, In Time' was the title of our celebratory events, and also of our ongoing quest and mission.

The United Nations has designated 27 October as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage aimed at building global awareness of the urgency and importance of preserving audiovisual materials such as sound recordings and moving images. These are among the most vulnerable types of heritage materials, due to the use of rapidly deteriorating materials in the construction of carriers and the impending obsolescence of playback machines, particularly for materials recorded on magnetic tape. A great deal of effort and care is required in order to preserve the marvellous 20th-century accomplishments of Arab cinema, television, radio and music industries for future generations. 

Dedicated to the safeguarding of cultural heritage, and in cooperation with UCL–Qatar and the British Library-Qatar Foundation Partnership, the Library cordially invites you to an evening to celebrate the unique audiovisual heritage of Qatar and the Middle East. We will discuss the importance and urgency of audiovisual preservation on a large scale in the hope of finding collaborative solutions by building on shared experience and expertise.

The event will have two parts:

1. A lecture: “The Gulf and the Arab Audiovisual Heritage: The Urgency and the Possibilities of Preservation,” by Hazem Jamjoum, British Library.

2. A panel discussion: “Preserving Our Audiovisual Heritage: Challenges and Opportunities”, with the participation of Shayya AlFadel, Abdul Salam Jadallah and Pamela Erskine-Loftus.

“It was a formidable moment of gender liberation, it was an explosion and something changed that never went back”… “Although, it’s not just the struggle for the right to vote that was beautiful because it was a victory for women that we could finally vote… But it’s not just that it’s what came after that’s important”

When fascism fell, the war ended, on June 2, 1946 the Italians returned to free vote: they were called to choose between monarchy or republic, and to elect representatives of the constitutional assembly.

The voices of the women who voted for the first time in Italy in 1946 were collected by an archivist and a visual anthropologist, Emanuela Mazzina and Silvana Profeta, in a documentary film that reactivates the memories of a generation marked by fascism and war. Stories of life different for culture, social class, region of origin, enrich the "official" representation of history with many individual narratives.

“Go to vote without lipstick!” was a famous recommendation addressed to women in the Italian press. The ballots paper, if recognizables because of lips traces, would be invalidated. The documentary is named after this exhortation.  

This project for the enhancement and conservation of memory and our collective stories is also designed for future generations. "The testimonies urge today's girls to reflect on the conquest of rights, warning them of the need not to take for granted what they have and to continue to seek that equality, which the interviewees themselves do not yet see definitively reached in fields other than the vote". 

The video interviews of the film were collected in a digital archive that will be accessible online. The film was produced by an institution and a company both involved in the management, preserving, dissemination of archives, Aamod and regesta.exe.

 

The film (color and b/n, duration 52”, edited by Milena Fiore) is constructed with footage from Archivio Istituto Luce Cinecittà, Aamod, private archives.

Wan-go Weng's Story and His Documentary Films Screening

Shanghai Audio-Visual Archives will celebrate the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage by holding themed screenings on 27th and 29th October. This year we will pay special attention to a filmmaker Wan-go Weng who has been unsung in the history of film. Our researcher will introduce Mr Weng’s life story and his achievement along with his three short documentary films: A Town by the Yangtze, Chinese Shadow Play and Painting a Chinese Figure.

Wan-go Weng, formerly known as Xingqing Weng, was born in Shanghai in 1918 with his ancestral home in Changshu. He is a great-great-grandson of Weng Tonghe (1830-1904), Chinese Confucian scholar and imperial tutor during the Qing dynasty. He was admitted to Shanghai Jiaotong University at the age of 18, went to Purdue University in the United States at the age of 20, and obtained a master's degree in mechanical and electrical engineering at the age of 22. In the same year, he entered the Department of Fine Arts at University of Wisconsin to learn painting. Since then he has been engaged in painting, photography and filmmaking.

For more than half a century, Mr. Wan-ge Weng has been dedicated in the anti-Japanese war, the promotion of Chinese culture and art, and the cultural communication between Chinese and American. The narration of "The Battle of China" in the famous anti-war series "Why We Fight" was written by Mr. Weng.

This year, as part of our celebrations of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, we organized several “backyard” tours of the Archive in September/October to widely introduce our continued activities to archive and preserve films.  We invited the film directors, producers and researchers from Asian countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Korea, China, India, Kazakhstan and Taiwan. One of the participants was a Philippine director Mr. Kidlat Tahimik, with whom we fully discussed the value and importance of film preservation especially in Asian countries.  Throughout the tours and communication with these visitors, we explained and shared the FIAF’s Manifesto, “Don’t Throw Film Away”, described in several languages including Japanese.

The musical score by Armando Leça (1891-1977), composed specifically for the Portuguese silent film “A Rosa do Adro” (Georges Pallu, 1919) will be performed live by the soloists of Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa, at Cinemateca (Lisbon), on October 26, 9,30pm, marking the centenary of the film's original theatrical release. Leça's score was transcribed, edited and adapted to the existing version of the film by a team of musicologists from NOVA FCSH in the context of a reserach project led by Instituto de Etnomusicologia – Centro de Estudos em Música e Dança (INET-md). The digitisation of the film and the reconstitution of its musical score are the result of a parternship between Cinemateca Portuguesa, Instituto de Etnomusicologia – Centro de Música e Dança da NOVA FCSH and Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa.

The screening of “A Rosa do Adro” is also the kick-off of a larger digitisation and DVD edition project of all the surviving films by Invicta Film, the most important and most prolific portuguese production company from silent cinema period. All the films will have either new commissioned musical scores or reconstituted original scores and will also be available in high definition DCP copies for loans in Portugal and abroad. This project will be concluded in 2023.

On the occasion of the 2019 World Day For Audiovisual Heritage on October 27th, Montenegrin Cinematheque will present three films online in order to raise the awareness of the importance of the preservation of audiovisual heritage.

These projects, highlight some of the most significant episodes of Montenegrin history. At the same time, these films have contributed to the dissemination of knowledge about values ​​and importance of cultural heritage and serve for cultural, scientific and educational needs of individuals and society.

1. There Is No Resurrection Without Death (Voskresenja ne biva bez smrti,1922) - Unique for many things, "Voskresenje" has literally followed the destiny of the country it was dedicated to. Ending of World War One brought the paradox unheard-of in the political history of Europe: Montenegro, country fought the side of allies, had lost its statehood. 

2. Montenegro and Great War (Crna Gora i Veliki rat, 2018) - This project is extremely important document for our society, because in short review presents all the relevant moments of our history, sidelined  from the general audience, but is really necessary for historical and  scientific importance of this period, which will witness the newly found film materials.

3. State Fortress Žabljak (Žabljak Crnojevića, 2018) - “The better you know something, the better you love it”: this also applies to our natural world, our history and our country, and the more we learn about them, the closer they grow to our heart. That’s when we truly appreciate them and treasure them! The largest, best preserved and undoubtedly the most important medieval fortified city situated on the territory of modern Montenegro and associated with the Crnojević family is certainly Žabljak, mostly known as Žabljak Crnojevića.

«Explora el pasado a través del sonido y las imágenes», UNESCO 2019

En el marco del proyecto de concientización del valor del documento audiovisual, el Archivo General de la Nación, realiza una campaña digital en la que incluye registros de actos cívicos y electorales que forman parte de su acervo documental.

En concordancia con su triple función social, ser fuente para la historia, el arte y la cultura; memoria institucional y ser garante de los derechos ciudadanos, el Archivo General, se une una vez más a la propuesta de la Unesco: “concientizar sobre la necesidad de tomar medidas urgentes y reconocer la importancia de los documentos audiovisuales, como parte integrante de la identidad nacional”.

El Departamento de Cine, Audio y Video, perteneciente al Archivo General de la Nación, lleva adelante este año la 4° edición de su proyecto de concientización del valor del documento audiovisual. En ese sentido, difundirá diferentes videos con registros documentales de su acervo referidos a actos cívicos y electorales, con el fin de poner en valor los procesos democráticos de Argentina.

Los documentos audiovisuales contienen los registros principales de los siglos XX-XXI; son fundamentales para probar los hechos de la Administración Pública y otros actores sociales. Es importante que mantengamos su autenticidad, integridad, fiabilidad y respeto al contexto de creación y producción.

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.

Slovak Film Institute is celebrating the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage by special screening on 27th October in Kino Lumière, the Cinema of the Slovak Film Institute, the new digitally restored Slovak feature film Wild Lilies (1972) from a major figure among the directors of the Czechoslovak New Wave Elo Havetta. He made only two feature films but these thanks to their artistic quality and originality stand out in the context of the Slovak cinema.

Wild Lilies is one of those films that do not seem to fit into the age when they were made. Playing with filmic language, references to other films, a story broken up into small episodes, and characters taken from the social periphery – all of these attributes mark Havetta’s auteurship typical of the late 1960s, and which in the context of Slovak cinema falls outside of any timeframe.

The film Wild Lilies is part of the collection of the National Film Archive of the Slovak Film Institute (SFI) and was digitally restored this year.

The Audiovisual Archive of this Institute holds nowadays not only an intangible memory, but also a technological one. Reel to reel tape recorders, cameras, microphones, discs and videocassetts are going to be displayed for the viewers, alongside photo projections with the scholars and technicians that worked with them. Considering these items not as mere artifacts but as means to connect to the people who used them, this exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Mexhit Daiu, one of the first scholars that collected traditional music since the creation of this Institute.

The festival Film:ReStored was launched four years ago to highlight new digital restorations and discuss the challenges of film heritage in the digital era and always takes place around the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage on October 27th.

Alongside premieres of 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.

Workshop reports and presentations 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.

UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Taiwan Academy of Los Angeles present new and compelling cinematic works from Taiwan, one of the most dynamic hubs of cultural exchange in the world. Restored classics will be shown alongside blockbuster hits and arthouse gems, most of them screening in Los Angeles for the first time. Diversity and gender equity in front of and behind the camera emerge as energizing themes, as well as questions of political, cultural and personal identity.

The Taiwan Biennial Film Festival is honored to present the following new restorations:

Richard Chen: Early Works
Saturday October 26, 2019 - 3:00 pm

Before becoming a leading director in the booming Taiwan commercial film industry of the 1970s and helming a series of classic melodramas starring then up-and-coming ingenue Brigitte Lin (Come Fly with Me; Moon Fascinating, Bird Sweet), Richard Chen was a film student at UCLA where he tried on a variety of genres and styles to explore issues of Taiwanese cultural and national identity. The Archive will present four of Chen’s student works newly restored by the Taiwan Film Institute.


Raining in the Mountain (Taiwan, 1979)
Monday October 28, 2019 - 7:30 pm

Two rival groups of thieves arrive at a remote Buddhist monastery to steal an ancient sutra manuscript while the monastery itself is rife with intrigue as the monks vie to succeed its aging abbot. The second of two classic epics, the other being Legend of the Mountain, shot by the legendary King Hu in Korea, Raining in the Mountain is a late-career masterpiece presented here in a new restoration.

415 Danish silent film titles, with a total running time of more than 350 hours will be digitized and made available for free on stumfilm.dk in the period 2019-2023. Film programs, posters, stills, manuscripts, intertitles, will accompany each film and reviews, as the materials surrounding the silent films will also be transformed into digital files.

Stumfilm.dk is at the heart of the comprehensive digitization and dissemination initiative that aims to digitize, study and disseminate the entire surviving Danish film heritage. Here you can follow the results of our film archaeological efforts and gain insight into a time, where Denmark was bigger than Hollywood.

Denmark was a leading film production country in the 1910s, which makes the films interesting to both national and international viewers and scholars. Both commercially and artistically Danish films dominated the world’s cinema screens, with Nordisk Films Kompagni (now Nordisk Film) at the forefront. Stars like Asta Nielsen, Valdemar Psilander and Fy & Bi were famous far beyond the shores of their home country. Denmark’s greatest film director, Carl Th. Dreyer, also started his career in silent cinema. As sound films gained ground in the early 1930s, silent films lost their value, and only an estimated 20% of the Danish silent film production exists today.

These 20% surviving films will now become available on stumfilm.dk and offer an, albeit not complete, image of who we once were. The films have a broad range, from prestige productions with international appeal to run-of-the-mill farces, illustrating the technical evolution from silent to sound, color to black and white, and much more.


Stumfilm.dk will be a dynamically developing website and everyone is invited to follow our work in film heritage, bringing our analogue past into the digital era. The process is vast and unpredictable. Some films have not been seen since the 1920s, but creating their path to stumfilm.dk also means that we are building the infrastructure continuously until the end of 2023.

As a guide to the films, we will contextualize the films in thematic collections, which highlight the fascinating, mysterious, awesome, sexy and funny stories hiding in the archive. Whether you are a researcher, enthusiast or just curious, you can dive into the early star culture, get an insight into the digitization process, or just browse your way through the cornucopia of cinematographic treasures.

The project is generously funded by Augustinus Fonden, Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansen Fonden and A.P. Møller Fonden, who each have donated 10 mio. DKK.

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

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.

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.

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.
