18 June 2013 – With the advent of the Digital, the cinema industry is undergoing a fundamental change. As films are being made in a new way, they will have to be archived in a new way: Digital film has to be archived digitally. Film archives need to be well prepared to react on these changes. For this purpose, ACE has conceived a series of workshops aiming at exchanging best practices and finding solutions how these challenges can be met on a strategic, economic and practical level.
The first workshop with a more general outlook was organised in Bologna in June 2012. It was based on the results of the EU report Challenges of the Digital Era for Film Heritage Institutions
The two half-days workshop “Collecting, Conserving and Exhibiting in a Digital World” will discuss strategies and best practices of digital archiving, setting up digital workflows, new ways of exhibiting film, preservation and training needs and how to share information, services and content.
It will be held on 4th and 5th July during Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival at the Grand Hotel Majestic, Bologna.
The workshop is open for ACE members. For further information and to register, please contact Kerstin Herlt via firstname.lastname@example.org
