3rd FIAF Programming Winter School at the Cinémathèque française

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Download the registration form HERE. Registration will close on 14 February (or when the course is full).

The full programme is now available HERE (in English) or HERE (in French).

For the third year in a row, FIAF and the Cinémathèque française are joining forces to offer a short training course aimed primarily at professionals in FIAF archives and beyond. The theme of this specialized course is “Programming Film Heritage”, and will once again be taught by experienced professionals from our sector, most of them programmers in film archives affiliated to FIAF. The course will take place at the Cinémathèque française on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 March 2018 (two full days), just before the start of Toute la mémoire du monde, the International Festival of Restored Film hosted by the Cinémathèque française (7-11 March 2018).

Following the success of the first two Winter Schools, the organizers thought that there was still a lot to discuss and learn about the topic of programming film heritage, and that a third course could introduce topics not or little covered before, as well as explore further those already covered in the last two years. Special attention will be paid to programming silent cinema and musical accompaniment, legal/rights issues, the relationship between “curating” and “programming”, film projection, and portraits of experienced programmers. We will once again aim to offer a carefully balanced combination of theoretical lectures and more practical sessions. Students will also have more opportunities to exchange with one another and with the trainers. We believe that this new course can be of interest both to students who already attended the Winter School, and new ones.

International speakers include Jay Weissberg (Director, Le Giornate del Cinema Muto, Pordenone); Michael Loebenstein (Director, Austrian Film Museum, Vienna), Elif Rongen (Curator, EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam, and festival programmer), Bryony Dixon (Curator of Silent Film, BFI), Annabelle Shaw (Copyright & Licensing Manager, BFI), Antti Alanen (programmer, KAVI, Helsinki), Serge Bromberg (Lobster Films), Maud Nelissen (pianist and composer), Jean-François Zygel (pianist and composer), Catherine Hulin (legal adviser at the Cinémathèque française), Karine Nonnon (Head of the Administrative Department at the CNC - Direction du patrimoine cinématographique), Jean-René Becquante (Head-Projectionist, Cinémathèque Française), Jean-Baptiste Hennion (independent projection specialist), and Massimo Benvegnú, the new Head of the FIAF Programming and Access to Collections Commission (PACC).

The course will be taught in French and in English, and simultaneous translation will be provided for all sessions. A completion certificate will be handed to students at the end of the training.

The registration fee will be 140.00€ (169.40€ inc. VAT) per person for employees of FIAF-affiliated institutions and registered students, and 180.00€ (217.80€ inc. VAT) for non-FIAF professionals. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, but a number of places will be reserved for employees of FIAF archives. Note that this fee includes:

  • Lunch on both days of the Winter School, and refreshments throughout the training,
  • Free access to festival screenings (except the Masterclasses, the opening and closing nights, and the all-night screening) on the premises of the Cinémathèque française from 7-11 March 2017 (subject to availability).

Participants are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, but a list of nearby hotels and restaurants is available HERE.
