Public lecture series
This is Film! 2023
Film Heritage in Practice
8 March — 24 May 2023
Under the overarching theme of ‘Activating the Archive’, also the theme of this year's Eye International Conference, scholars and film professionals worldwide present and discuss remarkable archival practices and initiatives.
This is Film! Film Heritage in Practice is an annual public lecture series devoted to notable projects in the fields of film restoration and film heritage, with international guest speakers and film screenings.
Each of the six sessions will highlight different institutional and non-institutional efforts to save and activate audiovisual heritage. Together with guests, we explore topics like the work of Cimateque – Alternative Film Centre Cairo, the preservation of Chilean exile films, and audiovisual heritage in India.
Film, talks & discussion
Each session will feature a short introduction by Giovanna Fossati (Chief Curator at Eye and Professor of Film Heritage at the University of Amsterdam), followed by a lecture and Q&A with an international expert on the topic and a film screening.
