21 September 2013 – In the wake of the 21st century the issues such as the future of our past and the death of cinema have been raised in the context of the reinvention of Cinephilia. The Greek Film Archive gathers archivists, filmmakers and academics to discuss in a one day conference the future of cinephilia in the digital era and the challenges of archive programming. The questions of how to curate film for the new Cinephilia and how to reinvent Cinephilia in times of crisis are brought to the forefront. Also, in a wired world where young people are constantly downloading films and participate in blogging communities and social media environments, what brings still audiences to the movie screens and in particular to cinemathèques. The seminar addresses directors, curators, film professonals and cineastes alike.
The seminar is organised in collaboration with ACE in the scope of the workshop series “Management Strategies for Film Archives in the Digital Era”. It takes place during the 7th Avant-garde and Independent Film Festival, 17-27 October 2013, Cinephilia in the New Era (N.S.R.F. 2007-2013)
