JTS 2019

Registration is open for a full week of audiovisual archiving knowledge and experience sharing: both the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives’ 50th Annual Conference and the Joint Technical Symposium, stewarded by the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archiving Associations, will be taking place at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum from September 30 – October 5. We’re happy to announce that registration for both events is now open! Save your seat for both or either event at 2019.iasa-web.org and jts2019.com.

#IASA50: IASA will be returning to the country of its birth, as the association was established in 1969 in Amsterdam to function as a medium for international co-operation between archives that preserve recorded sound and audiovisual documents. The preliminary programme is available at http://2019.iasa-web.org/programme. Do visit the conference website for more information about the conference, such as the programme, venue, travel advice, social events, information on workshops and tutorials, professional visits and other details: http://2019.iasa-web.org/. Please note that the “early bird” registration rate ends on September 2, 2019.

#JTS2019: JTS is the international scientific and technical symposium dealing with matters of particular importance to audiovisual archives and archivists. It provides an opportunity for audiovisual archiving experts from different backgrounds to come together, share new and upcoming technical advances in our field, and take positions that go beyond the boundaries of specific formats or domains. It is an occasion to inform each other about what’s going on in our field and seek cross-fertilization. Organized every few years since 1983 by the various audiovisual archives associations now forming the CCAAA, it provides an opportunity for colleagues around the world and those interested in the field to meet and share information about the preservation of original image and sound materials. Keep an eye on the website for updates: jts2019.com

We look forward to welcoming you in The Netherlands!

Film heritage: access, exhibition and distribution in the 21st century


ACE workshop during Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival, Bologna

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.

Workshop by Cinematek and Moma

From Concept to Concrete: Achieving Interoperability Through Linked Open Data in Film Archives and Beyond

Thursday, June 28th, 11.30 – 13.30
@ MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, Conference Hall, via Don Minzoni 14

Workshop promoted by Cinematek (Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique, Bruxelles), MoMA – The Museum of Modern Art, New York and supported by FIAF (International Federation of Film Archives) and IBC (Istituto per i beni artistici culturali e naturali della Regione Emilia-Romagna).

Participants:

  • Bram Biesbrouck (Republic of Reinvention)
  • Nicola Mazzanti (Cinematek)
  • Francesca Ricci (IBC), Thelma Ross (MoMA)

Why is interoperability so difficult for film archives to achieve? Efforts along these lines have often resulted in complete failure or imperfect results.
What if we just haven’t had the right solution until now?
Isn’t it worth taking a look if it means your institution can finally and more completely fulfill its goal to provide access to its collections, both film and film-related materials?
Linked Open Data may be the way forward and this workshop will present ideas, arguments, and concrete developments that should help you understand its potential as well as the resources available to help you start using it.
