FILM 4024 / ARTF 5024 – Adv. Research Seminar: Film Archiving and Preservation

With Professor Sabrina Negri

This seminar will teach students the basics of film archiving and preservation. We will tackle issues of theory and ethics of film preservation, and will discuss the case studies of some of the major preservation works done in recent years at film archives in Europe and the United States. Guest lecturers from major archival institutions will introduce the students to the everyday functioning of a film archive, and will share their experience as preservationists, curators, and artists. This course will also have a practical component, as we will do some hands-on preservation work on film prints.
