We are happy to present a brief report of the ACE workshop, which took place during Il Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna and concerned the access, exhibition and distribution of film heritage in the 21st century.
Tuesday 25 June, 2–5 p.m., MAMbo, Museum of Modern Art, via Don Giovanni Minzoni 14
In 2008 ACE started the European Film Gateway (EFG) project, linked to Europeana, as the first project to make our film heritage available online. The project confirmed the importance of metadata, and highlights its interoperability. The second step for ACE was the EFG / World War I project, a curatorial project for our film collections online. At this stage, more than 53,000 videos (videos, not films!) are available.
