EYE Film Institute Netherlands (formerly the Filmmuseum) presents the Film Biënnale, featuring unique film events at special venues throughout Amsterdam from 7 to 11 April. The Film Biënnale showcases film productions which blur the boundaries between different artistic disciplines, merging music, art, theatre and poetry.
On April 7th, AMIA will present a half-day session at the Biennale. The AMIA session will be followed by a half-day of The Reel Thing.
Wednesday April 7, 2010
9:30 – 12:30 – AMIA seminar
13:30 – 17:30 – The Reel Thing
The AMIA session at the Biennale will explore online access to Audiovisual Archives. Traditionally film archives are responsible for providing access to archival audio-visual content. But access to on-line AV archives today is provided by a much wider variety of agents: from individuals to communities, from film festivals to academic programs. During this half day seminar a selected number of recent projects will be presented focusing on the who is providing access to audio-visual archives, why they are doing it and for whom.
Following the AMIA session, The Reel Thing will present a half-day technical symposium. Dedicated to presenting the latest technologies in audiovisual restoration and preservation, The Reel Thing brings together a unique lineup of laboratory technicians and specialists.
Registration for both are free, but you must register to attend by March 30, 2010. You may register at: http://www.amianet.org/events/events/2010_biennale.php
