Film:ReStored_01

Film:ReStored_01: First Film Heritage Festival of the Deutsche Kinemathek will take place from 22-25 September 2016 in Berlin. FIAF is an official partner of that event, which will include a two-day conference discussing technical, ethical and aesthetic questions which are raised by the digitization of historical films. Several colleagues from FIAF archives will make presentations during this conference.

Please see the full programme of the festival and the conference below. The official brochure can be downloaded HERE.


Film Program

For four days - from September 22-25, 2016 - the Deutsche Kinemathek’s film heritage festival “Film:ReStored_01” will present public film screenings, offering the opportunity to experience the digital premieres of a treasure trove of cinema from six decades of German film history. The festival opens on September 22nd, launched by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Prof. Monika Grütters, and with the opening film KAMERADSCHAFT (DE/F, 1931, directed by Georg Wilhelm Pabst).

Conference

The film screenings are accompanied by a conference on September 23–24, 2016. Technical, ethical and aesthetic questions, which are raised by the digitization of historical films, will be addressed in lectures, panels and workshop discussions. This year a main focus of the discussions is the status and the preservation of (analog) originals after digitization. Taking reproducibility as a characteristic feature of the film medium into consideration, for the future it must still be clarified which media formats can be regarded as “originals” and how they should be treated as archival objects and/or as references for further duplication. National and international experts will report on their experiences with digital restoration and the archiving of historical films in Germany, France, Sweden and the USA. Different approaches have been put into practice and formulating stable criteria for a sustainable digital policy with regard to film heritage is one of the biggest cultural challenges of our times.

Children’s Program

On Sunday, September 25, 2016, the Mini Film Club of the Deutsches Filmmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, will make a guest appearance, offering children 5 a creative workshop based on the animated film SPIEL MIT STEINEN (AT, 1965, directed by Jan Švankmajer; film and workshop in German). The film presentation that follows, SABINE KLEIST, 7 JAHRE… (GDR, 1982, directed by Helmut Dziuba; with English subtitles), is recommended for children 8 .

Kinopreis des Kinematheksverbundes

On September 24, 2016 the Kinopreis des Kinematheksverbundes (a nationwide prize of the association of German cinematheques) will be presented in the context of the festival. This prize is awarded annually to local cinemas in appreciation of their exceptional programs and continuous commitment towards creating high-quality, thought-provoking and diverse cinema culture in Germany. This year also marks the first time that the “Lotte Eisner Prize” is being awarded for outstanding cinema programs. It is endowed with 6,000 euros. The awards ceremony will take place at the Deutsche Kinemathek on September 24th, at 7 pm.
