Online masterclasses

Eye International Conference 2021

The first masterclass Water, Climate, and Film, led by Jennifer Lynn Peterson (Woodbury University), will look back at the theme of the 6th Eye International Conference / 20th Orphan Film Symposium Water, Climate, and Migration (2020, online).

In lieu of the 2021 edition of the Eye International Conference, cancelled due to Covid-19, Eye presents two online masterclasses looking back and ahead at the previous and upcoming Eye International Conference.

In the second masterclass Global Audiovisual Archiving: North-South Exchange in Knowledge and Practices, international experts will share their views in a round table discussion on the topic of the upcoming 7th Eye International Conference on Global Audiovisual Archiving (2022).

Students undertaking the course This is Film! Film Heritage in Practice at the University of Amsterdam have created 1-minute film compilations inspired by one of the themes of the masterclasses. For the compilations, they have used footage from platforms such as Open Images, The Internet Archive, or other open-source repositories.
