Archiving Tomorrow 2015

12 Mar 2015 to 13 Mar 2015
Birmingham, UK

Welcome to Archiving Tomorrow 2015 in association with FOCAL International and hosted by The Kaleidoscope Archive. The conference is to bring together Archivists, Curators, Academics, Film Makers, Owners of Small & Specialised Collections of Audio Visual Materials, Editors, Producers, Directors, Technologists, Industry, Researchers and Archives of all size and form, to discuss, debate and learn about the in-depth revolution that is the transitional period between Film and Digital. Through interviews and presentations, workshops and panels with producers, commercial & regional archives, television channels, research and development teams, technologists, academics and projects, we look to examine all aspects of filmmaking, from capture to edit, visual effects to colour correction, preservation, distribution to archive and archive to screen We explore the legal implications of this, the economics behind the business of film, access, the past, the present and the future. At this moment in time when digital and photochemical filmmaking coexist, our aim is to explore and discover more on exactly what has been gained, what is lost, and what the future might bring.
