As a matter of fact, since 2007 Cineteca di Bologna – in collaboration with FIAF, ACE and UE MEDIA Plus Programme – has been promoting and hosting the FIAF Film Restoration Summer School, opening its highly specialized state-of-the-art laboratory, L’Immagine Ritrovata, which has been working in the film restoration industry for over 20 years.
The main purpose of this project is having selected participants experience hands-on the work of actual restoration professionals. They will also meet restoration experts from all over the world, as well as the Laboratory and Cineteca staff.
The Film Restoration Summer School / FIAF Summer School is designed both for archivists and staff working at FIAF archives, and students. The aim is to foster a shared knowledge in the field for current and future generations and film archives worldwide.
The Film Restoration Summer School / FIAF Summer School is divided into three stages:
* ON-LINE DISTANCE LEARNING
* THEORY CLASSES
* RESTORATION PRACTICE
