A Season of Classic Films

‘A Season of Classics Films’ is a series of free screenings planned between December 2020 until June 2021 across Europe to raise awareness of the work of European national and regional film archives, especially among young adults. Most of the films to be screened are new digital restorations and some include exciting elements such as experimental electronic music or augmented reality.

With 22 participating institutions, the initiative also aims to support the reopening of European film archives, all affected by the Covid19 crisis.

The Season of Classic Films initiative is supported financially by the EU Creative Europe programme and coordinated by the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE).
