TiF! What is Film Heritage?
In conversation with guests, Giovanna Fossati (chief curator at EYE and professor of Film Heritage at the UvA) addresses a wide range of film heritage projects. Each session consists of a (guest) lecture, a Q&A and a film screening, often accompanied by live music.
This opening lecture will revolve around the question that is central to this series: What is film heritage? By addressing this, Giovanna Fossati will illustrate in an accessible manner the different approaches, trends and challenges in preserving and presenting film heritage.
One of the examples she will draw upon when speaking about alternative film presentation formats is the Short Film Pool distribution system, an initiative of EYE, that provides subscribed film theatres with unlimited access to almost 500 digital short films. During this lecture, three EYE curators, each in their own field of expertise, will present a title from the Short Film Pool.
Guests: EYE curators Rommy Albers (Dutch Film), Mark-Paul Meyer (Expanded Cinema) and Elif Rongen-Kaynakçi (Silent Film)
Screening: compilation of Short Film Pool titles selected and introduced by curators.
