2013-03-11 | The digital revolution and the birth of Web 2.0 has fundamentally transformed the media landscape. As a consequence, the question of intellectual copyright is at the very center of the public debate and has also begun to draw the attention of scholars and researcher.

The conference “Who’s What? Intellectual Copyright in the Digital Era” will discuss different aspects of this transformation. One section is dedicated to “Property and the Archives”. Nicola Mazzanti (Cinémathèque royale de Belgique, ACE president) and Leontine Bout (EYE Film Institute Netherlands) will present the film archives perspective and speak about the impact of current copyright legislation on their daily work. A round table coordinated by the Association des Cinémathèques Europénnes will look into chances and limitations for using orphan films in view of the European Directive on orphan works.

UDINE conference is part of filmforum, an international festival devoted to cinema and the contemporary visual arts. It brings together scientific research, the dissemination of culture, and exhibition shows. FilmForum takes place in Udine and Gorizia and it offers conferences, meetings, workshops and screenings.

Description: “Challenges of the Digital Era for Film Heritage Institutions” is the first of a series of four workshops under the title “Management Strategies for Film Archives in the Digital Era” organised by the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE). 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.

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.
