This is Film 2022

Eye Filmmuseum presents the 8th edition of This is Film! Film Heritage in Practice. Under the overarching theme of Global Audiovisual Archiving, international guests present and discuss archival practices and initiatives, from Latin America to Lebanon and Indonesia.

Each of the six sessions will highlight different institutional and non-institutional efforts and archival practices worldwide. Together with guests, we explore topics like film heritage in Brazil, forgotten female film directors from Indonesia, the African Film Heritage Project, the efforts of the Asian Film Archive and the Southeast Asia-Pacific Audiovisual Archive Association, non-institutional practices in Latin America, and the Cinematheque Beirut project. This year's guests are all members of the Advisory Board of the Eye International Conference on Global Audiovisual Archiving.

Film, talks & discussion

Each session will feature a short introduction by Giovanna Fossati (Chief Curator at Eye and Professor of Film Heritage at the University of Amsterdam), followed by a lecture and Q&A with an international expert on the topic and a film screening.

The lectures are in English and can be attended as a series or on a one-off basis.

Please note that Eye will record these events for online publication afterwards.
