EFG1914 – Film digitisation project on First World War launches

2012-03-13 | With EFG1914, a major European co-operation project enters a new phase: Within the last three years (2008-2011), The European Film Gateway became a frequently used web portal for finding films and film-related material from the film archives and cinémathèques of Europe. Now, the follow-up project EFG1914 was kicked off. It officially started on 15 February and will run for two years. 26 partners contribute to the project. It will digitize up to 650 hours of film from and about World War I, and make the digitized film collections available on the Internet through the European Film Gateway  and the European digital library Europeana.
