DPC’s Digital Preservation Awards: A FIAF Member among the Finalists

We are pleased to inform you that the IFI Irish Film Archive, a FIAF Member, have made it to the finalists of the DPC’s Digital Preservation Awards, in the category Safeguarding the Digital Legacy: https://dpconline.org/news/legacy-finalists-announced-dpa2018

IFI Data and Digital Systems Manager Kieran O’Leary and his colleagues created a set of open source Python tools for use in their moving image digital preservation work, and those tools are now being used by moving image archives around the world. The context is described in detail here: https://www.dpconline.org/events/digital-preservation-awards/ifi-open-source-tools

If you’re interested in the Python script itself, you can view it in the IFIScripts Github repository: https://github.com/kieranjol/IFIscripts/

IFI have been active advocates for open source approaches to film digital preservation challenges, and acknowledgement of their great achievement in this area by the DPC is evidence of the increasing awareness in the digital preservation community of the pioneering work being done in moving image archives. IFI were represented by Kieran on the open source / open formats panel at the FIAF Congress in Prague, and Kieran has written on the developments of FFV1 Matroska for film scan digital preservation on his blog: https://kieranjol.wordpress.com/2016/10/07/introduction-to-ffv1-and-matroska-for-film-scans/
