ACE Workshop on Acquisition and Collection Policy in the Digital Era, Bologna, 3 July

DIF-Filmarchiv-Wi-034_kleiner24 June 2014 – Since 2012, ACE has been organising the workshop series “Management strategies for film archives in the digital era”. Aim of these workshops is to react on the fundamental change caused by the complete digitization of the film industry and the entire cinema chain.

This year’s workshop will focus on how collection and acquisition policies are affected by the advent of digital distribution.

  • How are film heritage institutions dealing with the fact that in the digital age deposit of non-domestic works is shrinking?
  • How does the status of analog collections change when prints cannot be replaced anymore?

These are some of the questions that have become increasingly important for all archives and that the workshop will debate. 

Speakers: Jon Wengström (Swedish Film Institute), Helen Edmunds and Kieron Webb (British Film Institute), Nicola Mazzanti (Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique), Michal Bregant (Národní filmový archiv – Czech National Film Archive),  Peter Bagrov (Gosfilmofond), Sandra den Hamer (EYE Film Institute Netherlands), Thomas C. Christensen (Danish Film Institute)
