Public lecture series
This is Film! 2024
Film Heritage in Practice
6 March — 15 May 2024
Under the overarching theme of ‘Presenting of Audiovisual Collections: Experiments and Explorations’, 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 forms of presentation of audiovisual heritage and collections both inside and outside the settings of the conventional film theatre. Together with guests, we explore topics like the work of the Pan African Film Archive, alternative presentations of silent cinema like Las Musidoras and exhibitions like No Master Territories.
Film, Talks & Discussion
Each session will feature a short introduction followed by a lecture and Q&A with an international expert on the topic and a film screening.
