2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

This year's theme: "Your Window to the World"

Add your event at the end of this page!

WDAVH-P3-ENG-400

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 "Your Window to the World".


2020 WORLD DAY FOR AUDIOVISUAL HERITAGE: CCAAA DECLARATION

2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year so far, with the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the world to its knees. Although we cannot yet fully grasp the economic, social, and cultural impact this major crisis will have on our societies, it has already exacerbated existing humanitarian and political crises in many parts of the world; it has brought mass unemployment, further exposed inequities within our communities, and created new epicenters of hunger. During this time of social distancing and social unrest, audiovisual materials in the form of sound recordings, film, and video have provided crucial documentary evidence of both atrocities and triumphs of the human condition.

The CCAAA, along with other documentary heritage partners, co-signed UNESCO’s statement “Turning the threat of COVID-19 into an opportunity for greater support to documentary heritage” in order to stress the importance of recorded materials and promote the preservation and accessibility of audiovisual content. Audiovisual materials as documentary heritage objects provide a window to the world as we observe events we cannot attend, we hear voices from the past who can no longer speak, and we craft stories that inform and entertain. Audiovisual content plays an increasingly vital role in our lives as we seek to understand the world and engage with our fellow beings.  

It is true that audiovisual materials are not inert and the archives that preserve them are not apolitical. While audiovisual recordings provide documentary evidence, they can also be highly mediated to tell a story from a specific perspective. At worst, they can be used to tell a false narrative. At best, they can be used to tell stories that would otherwise be silent. They can tell your story, your truth, your existence.

Join us on 27 October 2020 for World Day for Audiovisual Heritage by posting your events to this page. Promote justice, equity, and peace through audiovisual recordings. Celebrate the triumphs in your community and entertain us with your story. Show us your window to the world.

This Declaration is available as a PDF file in English, French, and Spanish.
Download and share the official poster in ENGLISH, FRENCH, and SPANISH.


The nine associations forming the CCAAA (AMIA, ARSC, FIAF, FIAT-IFTA, FOCAL International, IASA, ICA, SEAPAVAA, IFLA) strongly encourage all their members (and any other institutions) not only to join in the global celebrations of the 2020 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 page.

O conteúdo audiovisual desempenha um papel cada vez mais vital em nossas vidas, à medida que buscamos compreender o mundo e nos envolver com nossos semelhantes”.

Assim, olhando o mundo através de nossas janelas e através dos registros audiovisuais, esta edição do evento no Arquivo Nacional abordará  a cidade, suas transformações e a questão da moradia, com exibição de filmes do acervo do AN e dos cineastas Ana Maria Magalhães e Sérgio Péo, seguida de mesa de debates.

4K Restoration of Linjia Puzi Beijing Premiere celebrating October 27
27 October 2020
Art Theater, China Film Archive
Beijing
China

Last evening, China Film Archive's 4K digitally restored version of Linjia Puzi (aka The Lin Family Shop, 1959) had its Beijing premiere in the art theater to celebrate the World Day for Audio Visual Heritage 2020. With an excellent guiding introduction about this film and the restoring background, we spent a wonderful time with the audience to enjoy the new look of the classic film.    
Linjia Puzi undoubtedly leads the most representative films from the period of "17 years" of Chinese Film history. Directed by Shui Hua, adapted by Xia Yan from Mao Dun's literature, it focuses on the destiny of a small shop in a river town of Zhe Jiang in 1931 when the war just began. The story of the shop holding on to its business mirrors the anxiety and dilemma of the whole society at that time and the camera vividly captured people's struggling to survive from the harsh and turbulent social environment during the wartime. Not only it stands out for the exquisite drama but also values as a unique resource of historical research.
The well-known film star Ms. Yulan also played a role in Linjia Puzi, who just passed away in June 27, 2020 in Beijing at the age of 99.

Tassilo Adam in the Dutch East Indies in the 1920s
27 October 2020 - 26 October 2021
ONLINE ONLY

Gartenberg Media Enterprises presents a rare clip that Tassilo Adam filmed with the cooperation of the Royal authorities, who staged processions, and gatherings, and rituals for his camera. A number of these included representation of animals through dance. As the official ethnographer for the Dutch government of the East Indies, as well as a professional photographer, his moving image footage shows a considerably more sophisticated vision of the Dutch East Indies in the 1920s than other films of the period. Although transferred digitally, this material retains the lustrous sheen of the nitrate on which it was originally filmed.

In 2018, the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (https://www.nfsa.gov.au/latest/nfsa-acquisition-highlights-2018) acquired this collection of 31 reels of original nitrate from Gartenberg Media Enterprises. GME unearthed this collection in a storage warehouse, and then catalogued and researched the history and provenance of this rare footage. We then identified the NFSA as the long term archival repository for this unique and valuable moving image collection that represents the inflection point of Indigenous peoples with Colonial culture.

"Man, we have to go there, too!"
Online Publication of Interview with Partners in Digitalisation Programm
27 October 2020
ONLINE ONLY

The Saxon State and University Library (SLUB) in Dresden, Germany, had digitized 33 private films by a Saxon State Orchestra member and made them available in its media library. On the occasion of today's "World Audiovisual Heritage Day", a detailed interview with family members is published online, which provides information on the background of Alfred Schindler's passion for film.

_____________________________________________________________

What an exciting topic that would have been for Alfred Schindler: The Sächsische Staatskapelle playing in the Chinese city of Qīngdǎo – in the former German colonial town where German settlers founded the "Germania" Brewery in 1903, the successor of which is still brewing the popular Chinese beer "Tsingtao" and exporting it to more than a hundred countries... Alfred Schindler, a former solo violist of the orchestra, made short films on the many concert tours, about the country and its people. Schindler filmed cars, consumer products and street scenes in Venice, Granada, Toronto and many other destinations.

In September 2020, Alfred Schindler's family presented the films at a local press conference. In the presence of the Saxon State Minister for Culture and Tourism, Barbara Klepsch, and the orchestra director of the Saxon State Orchestra, Adrian Jones, Schindler's daughter Gabriele Schacht spoke in detail about the films; small excerpts from it made those present smile. Since then, the films have been available to everyone in the SLUB's digital media library. "The privately made small films by our longtime solo violist Alfred Schindler are now available alongside the 'official' film and television recordings that were made by the Staatskapelle and show the history of the orchestra from a very special, a private perspective." (Janine Schütz, head of the historical archive of the Saxon State Theater in Dresden, Germany).

The films were digitized as part of the "Safeguarding the Audiovisual Heritage in Saxony" program, which has been receiving analog audio and film treasures from associations, city archives, libraries, television stations and museum collections for two years. As of today, a one-hour interview with Schindler's family members is available online, which provides information about the background of his passion for films. Here Hiltraud Schindler (born 1927) and her daughter Gabriele Schacht talk about the special impressions that the musician's films made during their family screenings. Gabriele Schacht says about the effect on those who stayed at home, locked down in former East Germany without the prospect of ever attaining a visa to the Western world: "What you saw in the film, was eye-opening... How amazed we were at other countries and the different life-styles of their citizens. Later we said: Man, we have to go there, too!"

In the course of the restrictions of the COVID19 pandemic, the recent Asia tour of the Saxon State Orchestra - and with it the two concerts in Qīngdǎo today and tomorrow - was unfortunately canceled a few weeks ago. Music lovers around the world can now go on an imaginative journey to the Far East with Schindler's films instead.

(Please note that the interview was conducted in German)

Journée mondiale du patrimoine audiovisuel - Diffusion en ligne du film « Montagne vivante »


C’est en 1980 que l’UNESCO a instauré le 27 octobre comme la Journée mondiale du patrimoine audiovisuel afin de sensibiliser le grand public à la sauvegarde et la conservation des images en mouvement. Cette année, le thème de la Journée est « Explorez le passé en sons et en images ». Alors, à cette occasion, nous vous proposons de voir ou revoir un film phare de nos collections : « Montagne vivante » !

Bernard Guyot raconte la montagne, celle de la Savoie, autour de Notre Dame de Bellecombe. Avec sa caméra et son récit parlé, il s'attache avec une grande sensibilité, à nous faire découvrir les habitants de la montagne. Dans un récit à la fois enthousiaste et teinté d’ironie, il nous dévoile la vie de sa communauté et des paysans en particulier.

 

Le film sera disponible pendant 24h !  Rendez-vous ici

The race to future-proof our audiovisual collection
27 October 2020
ONLINE ONLY

Thousands of important videotape records in our collection are at risk because the machines needed to play them are no longer being manufactured. Many other magnetic media formats are at risk for the same reason, including audio recordings on cassettes and quarter-inch tape.

We have over 188,000 audio and videotapes that require digitisation to ensure their preservation. Although we have been doing this for a number of years, there is still more to do.

After 2025 the skills and equipment needed to digitise these magnetic tape recordings will be harder to come by, and the media itself will have begun to irretrievably deteriorate. That means the time to act is now.

A new project called ‘Future Proof’ signals our commitment and continuing efforts to save the nation’s significant audiovisual heritage. We will be spending $3 million dollars to ensure that a further 30,000 of our most critical recordings are digitised.

The funding announcement coincides with the UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, with the theme of ‘Your window to the world’.

Este año, el tema es "Tu ventana al mundo".

Los materiales audiovisuales como objetos del patrimonio documental brindan una ventana al mundo a medida que observamos eventos a los que no podemos asistir, escuchamos voces del pasado que ya no pueden hablar y creamos historias que informan y entretienen. El contenido audiovisual juega un papel cada vez más vital en nuestras vidas a medida que buscamos comprender el mundo y relacionarnos con nuestros semejantes. 

Este año desde la Cinemateca de Bogotá realizamos una selección de tres cortometrajes del director colombiano Lisandro Duque Naranjo que hacen parte de la Colección Fílmica Nacional de la Cinemateca de Bogotá y han sido restaurados gracias al apoyo y coordinación de la Fundación Patrimonio Fílmico Colombiano. Además conversaremos con el director sobre su obra y la importancia de preservar este patrimonio audiovisual para las futuras generaciones.

 

Cortometrajes:

Favor correrse atrás. Dir. Lisandro Duque. 1974. 10 min. Formato original: 35mm.
Lluvia Colombiana. Dir. Lisandro Duque y Herminio Barrera. 1977. 12 min. Formato original: 35mm.

The cinema that Tomàs Mallol liked. Mallol's contemporaries
Conference
27 October 2020
Museum of Cinema
Girona
Catalonia

Conference on the contemporaries of Tomàs Mallol in which the main names of amateur cinema of the 60s and 70s in Catalonia will be reviewed. It will be given by Mr. Albert Beorlegui i Tous, film commentator and co-author of the book El cinema amateur a Catalunya (2009).

Tomàs Mallol was a tireless filmmaker who made an immense work that must be vindicated as one of the best works of amateur cinema in Catalonia. All his filmography was made from the margins of the industry, from the most absolute freedom, with a clear artistic vocation and an obvious formal perfectionism. This idea of cinema always accompanied him, also when he was a spectator and went to the cinema. The directors he liked the best were always those who practiced this idea of cinema.

2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage
Independent Preservation for Independent Filmmakers & Introduce Your Collection
26 October - 31 December 2020
ONLINE ONLY

To commemorate the 2020 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the Korean Film Archive(KOFA) presents a) a lecture that suggests ways to preserve individuals’ audiovisual materials for independent filmmakers and b) an event that introduces personal audiovisual materials of KOFA users.

These days, public audiovisual archives centered on public institutions as well as private archiving activities are valued more than ever. Thanks to advances in technology, every individual can classify and preserve audiovisual materials with increased efficiency and security. Indeed, there is a growing demand for it. However, there is still a distinct lack of education or systematic programs that could encourage such archiving activities.

Through the lecture, ‘Independent Preservation for Independent Filmmakers’, we can take a look at the importance of independent film and personal moving image collections, and examine concrete preservation methods for them. Audiovisual archivist Kelly R. Haydon was invited to deliver this talk in 2019 as part of the centennial commemoration of Korean cinema, and we are sharing it online so that many people will be able to experience this informative lecture.

This presentation looks at preservation as part of the life cycle of creative work and gives practical advice to filmmakers on what they can do to ensure that their film is accessible long after its premiere. Topics covered include video and audiotape digitization, digital file storage and management, and the all-important metadata.

Lastly, the event, 'Introduce Your Collection' celebrates the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage with more people and refers to the importance of personal archiving activities.

The year 2020 is one for the history books. Various major events happened around the world reaching the climax with the spread of COVID-19.
With the advent of social media and other platforms, we see a lot of images online capturing snapshots of the ongoing pandemic. With the help of apps or simple editing software in mobile or computer devices, people are able to produce creative shorts from mundane activities while in isolation or in quarantine. A lot of people don’t even realize that they have become incidental filmmakers in their own right.
This documentation and online sharing process inspired us to undertake a collection and preservation effort that will later remind us of how ordinary folks or the nation responded to this pandemic.
This is also in support to the Cultural Center of the Philippines’s (CCP) objective of nurturing artists and audiences, for them to appreciate and promote artistic works. 
Through its vimeo channel, the CCP joins the celebration from 27 October to 3 November 2020, by streaming a collection of images showing how Filipinos responded through various creative ways, to the challenges brought about by COVID-19. For despite the pandemic, CCP still wants to make art matter to the life of everyone.

Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 4:00 pm (PT) – ARCHIVE TELEVISION TREASURES: THE CLASSIC GHOSTS: “THE SCREAMING SKULL” (ABC, 2/14/1973)

Join us, if you dare, for a Halloween-inspired screening of the rare episode “The Screaming Skull,” directed by Gloria Monty. The videotaped gothic horror tale stars ‘60s pop culture icon David McCallum (The Man From U.N.C.L.E) as a man under siege, with good cause, by the ghost of his dearly-departed spouse (Carrie Nye of Guiding Light and Creepshow). The drama co-stars Vincent Gardenia (Death Wish).

In terms of the history of the medium, The Classic Ghosts is noteworthy as an early production featuring a creative and technical team largely led by women, a number of whom were pioneers in television.

Introduced live by Mark Quigley, John H. Mitchell Television Archivist, and Maya Montañez Smukler, Archive Research and Study Center Officer and author of Liberating Hollywood: Women Directors and the Feminist Reform of 1970s.

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 4:00 pm (PT) – THE VAMPIRE BAT (1933)

Everybody loves Dr. von Niemann (Lionel Atwill), clueless that he his tales of medieval vampirism are a cover to murder the local proletariat to feed the artificial being he has created.

Capitalizing on the moment’s spooky movie craze, Poverty Row producer Phil Goldstone packed the cast with genre luminaries—Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, Melvyn Douglas—and staged them on cast-off sets from The Old Dark House and Frankenstein. It's foolish fun that plays like a midnight matinee from the old Shock Theater TV package.

The UCLA Film & Television Archive restoration recreates the sensational Gustav Brock color sequence, unacknowledged and unseen since its first run.

Followed by a live Q&A with author Victoria Riskin, daughter of Fay Wray and author of Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir.

„Retro“. TV-Programs from the 1950s and 1960s in the ARD Media Library
The archives of the ARD launch a joint online offer
27 October 2020 - 27 October 2021
ONLINE ONLY

On October 27th, all public service broadcasters in the network of the ARD and the German Broadcasting Archive (Deutsches Rundfunkarchiv) will make historical productions from their television archives accessible in the ARD media library for an unlimited period of time. The World day for Audiovisual Heritage 2020 thus marks the start of a new online audiovisual archive offering. Under the label "Retro"  around 9,000 TV-reports from the period before 1966 will then be available in the ARD media library. The offer will be continuously expanded.

In addition to TV-productions from the archives of the public service broadcasters, the ARD media library also provides access to contributions from the former state television of the GDR (Deutscher Fernsehfunk) – a heritage, for which the ARD has been committed to preserving and passing on for around three decades. The project thus makes it possible to research, view and link a large part of the West- and East- German television coverage of the 1950s and 1960s.

Film Screening of REJS (Marek Piwowski, PL 1970)
"Stationen der Filmgeschichte" | 8pm
27 October 2020
Filmmuseum Düsseldorf
Düsseldorf
Germany

50 years ago, the premiere of the surreal film REJS by Marek Piwowski took place in Poland. The film quickly became a cult classic. We take the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage as an opportunity to show the restored version of this film as part of our series “Stationen der Filmgeschichte”.

A group of passengers get together for a boat tour to exotic destinations along the Kashubian coast. A stowaway, Tym, sneaks aboard without a ticket. The captain of the ship mistakes him for an entertainer. Initially this stowaway gladly takes on his new role, setting to work at manipulating the passengers and crew into silly and vaguely humiliating games.  

Before long, Tym has got everyone under his thumb and creates his own comedic dictatorship. A memorable performance is given by Jan Himilsbach, an amateur actor who formerly carved tombstones.

In her introductory lecture film expert Lidia Helena Jansen (Polish Institute Düsseldorf) gives insight into the history of the film’s production and its extraordinary use of language as well as facts about its director Marek Piwowski, the screen writer Janusz Glowacki and the composer Wojciech Kilar.

 An event in cooperation with the Polish Institute Düsseldorf.

To commemorate the World Day for AV Heritage, the Asian Film Archive (AFA) presents a specially curated film programme and online symposium entitled Reframe: The (In)Hospitable World.  

In 2020, our world has reached a new level of inhospitality with the coronavirus outbreak. The (In)Hospitable World film programme explores the power of cinema to represent, reflect, and envision lives in “an unpredictable and increasingly inhospitable world.” [Jennifer Fay, Inhospitable World: Cinema in the Time of the Anthropocene (2018)] The films initiate a rethink of how we can relate, connect and act during the time of crises, how we can cope with the losses and grief while envisioning a possible future, within a (post) pandemic new normal.

Screenings run until 22 November 2020 at Oldham Theatre, with selected films on VOD. Visit https://bit.ly/TheInhospitableWorld for more information. 

 

Online Symposium

Join the free online symposium of The (In)Hospitable World on Friday, 23 October 2020 from 10am (SGT/UTC 8), streamed live on AFA’s Facebook page and Youtube channels. Visit https://bit.ly/InHospitableWorldSymposium for the full schedule and speaker lineup. 

An illustrious lineup of international speakers will address ecological, environmental, and public health issues represented through Asian cinema: 

  1. theorising of Asian cinema in the (in)hospitable world;
  2. making films in times of environmental and health crises; 
  3. new forms of film distribution, exhibition and spectatorship in a (post) catastrophic time.

In compliance with the Ordinance of the President of the Council of Ministers of 24th October 2020, the Cinema Massimo will keep closed from 26th October. The screening won't take place.

 

On the occasion of the International Audiovisual Heritage Day, the National Museum of Cinema proposes, as part of the "Cinema Ritrovato al Cinema" project, a special screening of Nanni Moretti's Caro Diario, restored by Cineteca di Bologna.


CARO DIARIO by Nanni Moretti (Italy-France 1993), Prix de la mise en scène at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.
Divided into three autonomous and complementary chapters (In vespa, Isole e Medici), the movie remains, almost thirty years after its release, a surprising turning point for a single author of our cinema: a collective autobiography, where the director's personal obsessions - the past, the houses, the dance, the (bad) critics… - merge with those of an entire country, unable to remember, communicate, listen, understand.

Eye Filmmuseum announces the forthcoming release of The Brilliant Biograph: Earliest Moving Images of Europe (1897-1902) on its new streaming platform Eye Film Playerᵇᵉᵗᵃ. Everybody can enjoy this film free of charge from the comfort of home starting October 27th.
The Brilliant Biograph features newly restored 68mm films made between 1897 and 1903. Eye Filmmuseum houses around 200 Mutoscope and Biograph films on the original 68mm format, making it the largest such collection in the world. Because of their obsolete format, the films were digitally restored at a resolution of around 8K by Haghefilm Digitaal and Cineric laboratories.

Thanks to funding from the European Commission’s ‘European Tribute to Film Heritage’ programme, Eye digitized 50 selected films and, in partnership with the British Film Institute, produced a compilation of some remarkable films of high quality, accompanied by a specially composed score by Dutch composer Daan van den Hurk.

The online release of The Brilliant Biograph on the streaming platform follows premieres in Amsterdam, at the Lyon Lumiere Film Festival, at the Giornate del Cinema Muto 'limited edition', and distribution through art houses in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The release also coincides with World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (WDAH), celebrated annually on 27 October. The day provides an occasion to raise awareness of the need to take urgent measures and to acknowledge the importance of audiovisual documents. According to WDAH, audiovisual materials as documentary heritage objects provide “a window to the world as we observe events we cannot attend, we hear voices from the past who can no longer speak, and we craft stories that inform and entertain. Audiovisual content plays an increasingly vital role in our lives as we seek to understand the world and engage with our fellow beings.”

Eye Film Playerᵇᵉᵗᵃ offers free movies and rentals from the internationally renowned Eye collection. No account is needed to watch the selection of free films. The aim of Eye Film Player is to share the treasures from the collection online, so that they can be discovered and enjoyed by everyone. As of November 2020, new titles will be added on a monthly basis. The official worldwide launch of the Eye Film Player is scheduled for January 2021.

From Elias Querejeta Zine Eskola in Spain, the students from Film Preservation Studies are very excited to announce that we will be celebrating the Heritage Day on the October 27th 2020.

 

For this day we have prepared two different online seminars.

The first one will be attended by Antoni Muntadas and Santiago Eraso. It will discuss the importance of preservation, creation and divulgation with the main goal of creating new vital discourses about reality.

Antoni Muntadas is an artist and a pedagogue. He uses this two different practices to activate AV archives where the methodology is very important.

Santiago Eraso was the main director of the project ARTELEKU. ARTELEKU was a piooner video-art media library based in the Basque Country. It was also an archive itself. After its disappearance an online archive was born from all the materials that were shown and created in this center.

 

The second seminar will be attended by Solimán López and José Ramón Alcalá Mellado. It will be a discussion about how technology has helped to create new ways of thinking an archive and how this new archives allow to form a new ideology around art and AV materials.

 

Solimán López is a contemporary artist specialized in digital art, science and technology.

He is the founder of the first Digital Art Museum, the Harddiskmuseum. This project pretends to create an archive of digital art and at the same time rethink about the classical concept of museums, art and how society perceive archiving digital art.

José Ramón Alcalá Mellado is a professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha. He is the director of the International Museum of Electrography.

He was also head of the collection and the archive of contemporary art in the faculty of Fine Arts from Cuenca.

We are very happy to invite you to log in and come to listen to this special guests.

Flevolands Archive: IJsselmeerpolder films
Elize Weijers of the Flevolands Archive talks about the unique film collection of the Rijksdienst voor de IJsselmeerpolders that was responsible for the design of the drained IJsselmeerpolders. Much of the work was recorded on film. 92 films from this collection were recently digitised. Elize examines the digitisation process and discusses the challenges she and her team faced.

Sound and Vision: the Westerborkfilm
In 1944, the Jewish prisoner Rudolf Breslauer was commissioned by Camp Commander Albert Konrad Gemmeker to shoot a film about life in Camp Westerbork; this film was never finished. Since 1997 the film material has been in the custody of Sound and Vision. Valentine Kuypers and Paulo Veiga da Fonseca of Sound and Vision talk about the reconstruction and restoration of the Westerbork film. The Westerborkfilm was added to the Unesco Memory of the World Register in 2017.

Eye Film Museum: The Brilliant Biograph
Annike Kross of Eye Filmmuseum talks about the restoration of the films from the collection of the Mutoscope and Biograph Company, one of the first film companies. The films contain unique images of London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. Eye made a compilation of fifty one-minute films with the restored films.

CELEBRATION OF WORLD AUDIOVISUAL HERITAGE DAY 2020
26 October - 01 November 2020
ONLINE ONLY

It is festival in conjunction with this year's 'World Day for Audiovisual Heritage' celebrations that elevate audiovisuals on the UNESCO agenda; as one of the most impactful mediums and platforms in the world today. The 7 days online festival will feature screenings and discussions, especially in the context of the Memory of The World's programme.

The event is an attempt to raise the UNESCO agenda at the national level, using the digital approach as one of the current post-pandemic COVID19 approaches. In addition, it is also a space for implementation to build the agenda related to film in UNESCO globally, which has been given less attention at the national level.

The festival will feature 11 programme, among others, as an effort to show how the world, especially Malaysia can adapt to the new norm due to the COVIC19 pandemic, without denying the need to continue past activities and aspirations through current digital platforms and mediums.

The list of the 11 programme is :

1. Documentary screening 'Khazanah Dari Utara'

2. Opening of the 'World Day for Audiovisual Heritage' Celebration 

3. MOW nomination sharing session

4. Special night screening

5. Forum - "Audiovisual & Malaysia di Memory of the World"

6. Special Award of Appreciation

7. Basic Film Preservation & Restoration Workshop

Journey back to "Errigal"
revisiting Patrick Carey's masterpiece
24 October 2020 - 24 October 2021
ONLINE ONLY

To celebrate World Day for Audio Visual Heritage the IFI Irish Film Archive is celebrating the work of Academy Award nominated filmmaker Patrick Carey, specifically his 1970 short film Errigal. Part of a series  of lyrical and evocative films depicting the landscape, flora and fauna of Ireland, this stunning documentary is set against the scenic backdrop of Mount Errigal in County Donegal.
The mountains of Donegal are depicted like fairytale characters, where the hero Mount Errigal competes with neighbouring villain Mount Muckish. A fantastical narrative explains that the landscape is ‘a battleground where the weapons are the elements themselves’. Dramatic footage of storms and lightning blends with a superb score by Irish composer Brian Boydell.

To accompany the film which is featured on the IFI's online platform the IFI Player, Archive staff member Gavin Martin has written a blog discussing his work scanning and remastering this observational and reflective work.

Preservation of moving image on synthetic DNA
A world-first collaboration with OFCH
25 September - 27 October 2020
ONLINE ONLY

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) and the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage (OFCH)  announced that Cathy Freeman’s gold medal win at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games has been preserved for future generations using an innovative, sustainable, long term storage technology: synthetic DNA.  

On 25 September 2020 the footage was projected on the sails of the Sydney Opera House, to mark both Freeman’s historic achievement, and its preservation on DNA.  

The project is a world first, using emerging DNA data storage technology to preserve moving image for archival purposes. It is also the first Australian video ever to be encoded on DNA.   

The master copy of the race, owned by the OFCH, is stored in Switzerland on magnetic tape - an obsolete technology prevalent 20 years ago. Once digitised the resulting file occupies 1 gigabyte, but it will now be kept in microscopic synthetic DNA for thousands of years. The DNA copy will be stored in a vial the size of a AAA battery, which can be put on a shelf for thousands of years without additional maintenance.

Die von Studierenden des Master-Studiengangs Filmkulturerbe der Filmuniversität Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF organisierte Veranstaltung nimmt die Materialität von Filmton inden Fokus und macht dieses wesentliche, aber in der Rezeption oft vernachlässigte, Element von Filmen sichtbar(er).

Mit den Spielfilmen "Berberian Sound Studio" (R: Peter Strickland, GB/D/AUS 2012) und "Blow Out" (R: Brian De Palma, USA 1981) stehen zwei Thriller auf dem Programm, die sich auf selbstreferentielle Art mit dem Thema Filmton auseinandersetzen. Den auf der Leinwandhandelnden Personen dient Tontechnik als machtvolles Mittel zur gegenseitigen Manipulation. Die Wirkung verfehlt auch die Zuschauer*innen im Kino nicht, während diese gleichzeitig dabei zusehen und -hören können, mit welcher Sensibilität und Komplexität Filmton zum Einsatz kommt.

Der renommierte Filmtonmeister und Musiker Frank Behnke berichtet in einem Vortrag von seinen praktischen Erfahrungen.
