The ongoing process of digitalisation presents film archives with the necessity of changing their workflows, strategies, and policies and of providing their staff with additional training. For this reason, the Film University Babelsberg (Filmuni Summer School)decided to establish the "Digital Archives" Summer School in collaboration with the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and Deutsche Kinemathek Berlin. The concept was developed by Dr. Adelheid Heftberger, Jürgen Keiper and Prof. Dr. Chris Wahl from an initial idea by Adelheid Heftberger. The first edition focuses on the subject of data literacy and presentation strategies.


Note that FIAF will award a small number of scholarships that will cover partial or full participation fees. Travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the applicants themselves. The application deadline for the FIAF scholarship is 30 May 2021.

BAVASS 2021 will be an online event, running for ten days in late September. Based on successful online training models that FIAF has used during the pandemic, and on the successful first edition of this biennial event held in Bloomington, Indiana, in May 2019, this ambitious training school will combine lectures and interactive workshops across a wide range of topics. Participants will also carry out assignments in their own time throughout the two weeks of the school. The course will be conducted in English only.



BAVASS 2021 online will concentrate on the key aspects of the work of film archives, covering both practical and theoretical subjects taught by leading experts in the field. Each day will consist of a lecture for all participants and workshops for smaller groups in which discussion of the participants’ assignments will form the basis of the training. There will also be opportunities for the participants to get to know each other in free-discussion periods.


The provisional list of topics covered can be found below. Please note that BAVASS does not cover topics at an advanced level. The training is suitable for archivists wishing to broaden their knowledge in areas where they do not currently have expertise, and for students and others who wish to gain a wide understanding of the essential elements of film archiving.

Only those who have attended the full course will be awarded a course completion certificate.


Registration will be open between 16 June and 7 July. Successful candidates will be notified by email by Friday 16 July at the latest, and will be asked to complete a brief registration form and pay the registration fee of 150€ (plus VAT if applicable) for employees of FIAF-affiliated institutions and full-time students (proof of enrolment required), or 200€ (plus VAT if applicable) for all others.
