Madrid conference on training systems for the preservation and diffusion of AV heritage – Conclusions

Organized by the Filmoteca Española, the conference took place on 7 – 8 June 2010 on the occasion of the Spanish EU Presidency. The following conclusions are based on the presentations by the speakers who constitute a highly representative body drawn from film archives, universities which offer courses related to the film heritage, and institutions dedicated to training in the areas of the conservation and diffusion of cultural heritage within Europe as a whole.

Conclusions

The Conference participants, all representatives from film archives, European universities and training institutes

State:

  • The creation, in various European countries, of University M.A courses and other introductory training modules designed to provide training related to the Film Heritage, particularly in conservation and restoration.
  • The holding of specialised conferences, seminars and other modules of ongoing education, largely organised through the initiative of film archives.
  • That the impact of new technologies calls for the redefining, with an eye to the future, of the occupations and profiles related to the Film Heritage and its conservation and diffusion.

Recommend:

  • Closer ties between film archives and training centres in order to agree on supply and match it to demand, with a view to a future market of diversified work, and the need to establish broader professional and occupational categories.
  • Therefore, the formulation of, on the one hand, a referential table of professional tasks and profiles and, on the other, a White Paper on existing training with recognised results.

Request:

  • That the conservation and valorization of the Film Heritage receive European Union and Member State recognition and support equal to that given to other cultural areas, such as Fine Arts and Libraries.
  • The establishment at a trans-national European level of an initial training born of an agreement between Universities and Archives, with additional periodic ongoing education initiatives, which would take into account, on the one hand, the array of professional tasks and levels required, and on the other, their place within a broad and high-level training format which responds to the express ambition to put the film heritage on a level footing with other cultural sectors.
  • An increase in European Union support through the diversity of its programmes and other Community instruments, taking into consideration its trans-national sphere of activity and its principles of subsidiarity.

Austrian Film Museum Publishes Schlemmer Frame Collection

28 April 2010 – The Schlemmer Frame Collection is the property of Edith Schlemmer, the former chief archivist of the Austrian Film Museum. Mrs. Schlemmer had received it in the 1960s as a donation from an anonymous collector, and decided to make it available to the Austrian Film Museum for purposes of research and publication.


This little treasure consists of 2254 frames and fragments of films, mostly silent and mostly from the period between 1910 and 1920, many of which are believed lost. The collection has now been digitized and ordered, with the aim of identifying and cataloging the individual items as well as preserving the original order. At present, 35% of the collection have been identified. The process of research and identification is ongoing and will presumably continue for several years. As a parallel endeavour, a visual database of these beautiful images has been created and can be accessed here.

Although many film archives are in possession of these types of collections, it is the first time that one of them receives such detailed attention from researchers. The aim of the Austrian Film Museum is to make these images accessible to the larger public, to enable everyone to enjoy the colors and photography of early cinema, to constitute a historical resource for archivists and researchers, and to enlarge the debate about open archives and « orphan » collections held in those archives.
