CFP: Archiving Tomorrow 2013

Archiving Tomorrow 2013
20-22 November 2013
Manchester & Media City UK

Archiving Tomorrow seeks to welcome, archivists, academics, producers, industry professionals, creatives and manufacturers to come together to learn, discuss and debate with an option of submitting a paper on a wide range of topics surrounding the transitional period from film to digital and the issues of archiving the various forms of moving image. We invite authors to submit a paper for presentation at the conference, or those who wish to attend to mix with others interested in the field.

Archiving Tomorrow takes an in-depth look at the revolution of film from specialised photochemical film to instant digital imaging. We invite directors, cinematographers, film students, academics, producers, technologists, editors, exhibitors and archivists to learn, discuss, and debate the issues surrounding the film industry. Archiving Tomorrow will consider all aspects of filmmaking, recording, editing, visual effects, color correction, distribution, archive and everything in between. At this time of change we investigate the effect of the options now available to film makers, the positive and negative effects they bring and what is possible in the future.

Topics: Transitions from film to digital, The future of film: relevance of film in cinemas and for the archives, Sharing knowledge of historical media technology, Archiving for the future and archiving future broadcasts, Digitizing: methods, best practice and innovation, Reaching consensus: industry wide standards, Online archive material and access rights, Metadata systems and management, Emerging technologies in archiving, Commercial and business development of archives, Digital asset management, Embedding archiving in production and creation.
