Public lecture: A Million Pictures at This is Film! Film Heritage in Practice
Every year, EYE Film Institute Netherlands and the University of Amsterdam present a series of public lectures devoted to notable projects in the field of film restoration and film heritage.
In a series of six lectures, Giovanna Fossati (chief curator at EYE and professor of Film Heritage at UvA) discusses in an accessible manner various recent restoration projects and presentation forms of film heritage, varying from pre-cinema to recent experimental films and Hollywood classics. Besides regular film projections in cinemas, the lectures cover film installations and exhibitions of film and film apparatus. Each lecture includes a film screening or demonstration, often accompanied by live music, and a guest speaker.
The session of 8 May 2017 will be dedicated to the (digital) documentation and preservation of magic lantern slides, including a magic lantern show. More details about lecture and show will follow soon!
This is Film! offers insight into what happens behind the scenes in film archives and museums and is aimed at everybody who loves film. The lectures are in English and can be attended as a series or on a one-off basis.
