Rethinking Film Preservation

Printer-friendly versionSend by email
As the need for audiovisual and media preservation becomes a growing concern for cultural institutions, libraries and archives must develop preservation options and priorities for their collections. Dr. Caroline Frick will address the issues surrounding film preservation in today’s environment of rapidly evolving digital technologies and explain how this impacts the work of the film archivist. Drawing on her research and experiences in the field of moving image archives, Dr. Frick will discuss the role of traditional film preservation in a time of changing access demands and increased urgency to protect some of our most at risk collections.
