The event is organised in cooperation with NYU Cinema Studies and the University of Amsterdam. For the first time, it will be held in Europe. Theme of Orphans 9 is “The Future of Obsolescence”: What kind of orphan films document these phenomena? What neglected and orphaned media should we re-view to better understand the world? How should archivists and curators deal with obsolete “new media”? How do archives, museums, libraries, and sister institutions participate in remix culture? The symposium addresses archivists, curators, scholars, technology experts, librarians, collectors, distributors, preservationists, artists, and legal experts alike.  It starts on Sunday evening, March 30, 2014, with a film concert and the world premiere of the recent EYE discovery and preservation of East is West (USA, 1922). One session will be dedicated to the FORWARD project, the European Registry for Orphan Works.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen (Berlin), the Conference “Sammeln, Sichern, Sehen. Was ist eine Kinemathek” (Collecting, preserving, presenting: What are Cinémathèques?”) aims to analyse the origins, the development and the self- definition of Cinematheques and assess their social, political and aesthetical function: How can film museums and film archives remain significant places to create and promote film culture and knowledge? How can they contribute to a modern approach to film heritage? Film archivists and experts will give lectures and discuss in round tables about archival standards, collection practices and their pitfalls, and, last but not least, modes of conveying and presenting their archival goods in exhibitions,  screenings or via completely new channels.
