Digital Agenda for Film Archives

ACE Position Paper on Digital

A digital agenda for film archives” (Thomas C. Christensen/Mikko Kuutti) describes the challenges of the digital turn and discusses the role of the archives in this process. Compared to analogue preservation, digital archiving requires very different workflows, technologies and skills. While most of the traditional analogue tasks will continue, film archives must also be prepared to perform proper digital archiving. This has impact on many levels such as curatorship, screening, preservation, distribution and access, training, funding, and legal issues.
