Digitising and Reimagining Your Film and Sound Archives

PRONI, Tuesday 20th March 2018

In partnership with the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), the Film, Sound & Photography Section (FSPS) of the Archives and Records Association is pleased to announce a day-long workshop on 20th March 2018, held at PRONI.

This event is for archivists interested in film and sound, and will focus on areas such as digitisation and preservation with speakers from the Irish Film Institute, Northern Ireland Screen and National Museums Northern Ireland (NMNI).
