Symposium "No Time to Wait 2"

Cinema Futures, 2016, Michael Palm
November 9 and 10, 2017

We are especially pleased to host the second symposium of "No Time to Wait", a gathering of specialists in the Open Standards Digital Film Preservation Community. Physical photochemical film and its preservation – as an object, a medium and a cultural technology – remain central to the work of the Austrian Film Museum. But cinema, including its production and preservation technologies, does not come to an end with the end of analog film as the industrial standard. It is crucial for film museums and archives to be vigilant about questions in regard to long-term digital archiving and open media standards are essential to these matters.

The symposium is jointly organized by the Austrian Film Museum and MediaArea.net. Further information and registration: mediaarea.net/MediaConch/notimetowait2.html
