Moving Image Archiving and the Academy

University of Leeds
15 March 2008 00:00

Call for Registration 

Following on from MeCCSA’s Future of Screen Heritage symposium held in September 2007, this conference reassesses aspects of the institutional and intellectual links which exist between our film archives and our universities, and explores how they might develop and strengthen.

Such links now seem woven into the fabric of scholarly activity around research and curation of moving image material.  New questions now challenge us, from the implications of digitisation on collections and access, to the challenges of copyright and legal deposit.  You are invited to join them to discuss these.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

  • Charles Barr (Washington University in St. Louis)
  • Nicholas Pronay (University of Leeds)

Confirmed presentations from:

  • Claude Mussou (Institut National de l’Audiovisuel, Paris)
  • Johan Oomen (Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid, Hilversum)
  • Patrick Russell (BFI, London)
  • Justin Smith (University of Portsmouth)
  • Richard Taylor (East Anglian Film Archive, Norwich)
  • Peter Todd (BFI, London)

Delegate fees are £30 concessionary rate; £40 standard rate; £50 for registrations after March 7th.   Fees include lunch and refreshments.  To register your interest in attending, and for other information phone or send an email to:
