EFG1914 at 32nd Pordenone Silent Film Festival

7 October 2013 – During this year’s Pordenone Silent Film Festival, EFG1914 partners show highlights from their collections related to the First World War. The presentation will take place on Wednesday9th October from 14:30 – 16:30h in the Auditorium della Regione (Via Roma 2).

Within the scope of the EFG1914 project, 21 film archives are digitising a considerable amount of their WWI collections. For the Centenary of the First World War in early 2014, more than 600 hrs of documentaries, newsreels, amateur footage and feature films from and related to WWI will be available on the European Film Gateway and Europeana websites. As approximately 80% of films from this period are considered lost, the material provided through EFG1914 represents a considerable share of what has been preserved from the time in Europe’s film archives.

18 June 2013 – With the advent of the Digital, the cinema industry is undergoing a fundamental change  As films are being made in a new way, they will have to be archived in a new way: Digital film has to be archived digitally.

 The two half-days workshop « Collecting, Conserving and Exhibiting in a Digital World » will discuss strategies and best practices of digital archiving, setting up digital workflows, new ways of exhibiting film, preservation and training needs and how to share information, services and content.

ACE Workshop Series « Management Strategies for Film Archives in the Digital Era »

4 June 2012 – With the entire film industry changing to digital, film archives need to be well prepared if they want to collect, preserve and show both analogue and digital formats. Based on the recommendations of the “ACE Position Paper on the Digital”, ACE is organising a series of 3 – 4 workshops for (higher) management staff  of the ACE member archives to discuss strategies how these challenges can be met. The workshops are conceived as forums to discuss the intellectual and practical requirements which come along with digital archiving. The aim is to pool together competences and expertise already existing in the ACE member archives in such fields as archive technology and strategic planning (digitisation planning, training, funding, etc.).

The first workshop, which starts with a general outlook and focuses on the results of the Study “Challenges of the Digital Era for Film Heritage Institutions”, will be held during the Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival in Bologna on Thursday, 28 June 2012.  Registration is open to management staff from the ACE member archives.  For further information and to register, please see the draft programme.

The second workshop, dedicated to training in digital workflows and digital preservation, will take place at the Danish Film Institute later this year or early 2013. Further workshops will be scheduled and announced in due time.
