Film Curatorship: Archives, Museums, and the Digital Marketplace

Overview

What are the major issues and challenges film archives, cinémathèques, and film museums are bound to face in the digital age, and at a time when there is an expectation of access on demand? What is curatorship, and what does it imply in the context of film preservation and presentation? Is there a concept of the “film artifact” that transcends the idea of film as “content” or “art” in the information age?

Film Curatorship is an experiment: a collective text, a montage of dialogues, conversations, and exchanges among four professionals representing three generations of film archivists and curators. It calls for an open philosophical and ethical debate on fundamental questions the profession must come to terms with in the twenty-first century.

This book is jointly published with Le Giornate del Cinema muto, Pordenone, Italy.
