In partnership with the Cinémathèque française and the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé

Presentation of the course

In early March 2025, FIAF will join forces with the Cinémathèque française and the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé once again to offer a short training course (in English and French) aimed at professionals in FIAF archives and beyond. The general theme of this specialized course is still "Programming Film Heritage", and will once again be taught by programming experts from the global network of FIAF archives and other distinguished professionals in a relevant field. This 10th edition of the Winter School will take place on-site only, at the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé and at the Cinémathèque, on 3 and 4 March 2025, just before the Cinémathèque française festival (5-9 March 2025).

Speakers & Programme

The classes (a mixture of lectures, workshops and round-table discussions) will be taught by programming experts from the global network of FIAF archives, and other distinguished professionals in a relevant field. Note that presentations will be delivered in English or French, with simultaneous translation available throughout the course. FIAF's Programming and Access to Collections Commission will lead one of the sessions.

Registration & Fee

The registration fee will be 150€ for employees of FIAF-affiliated institutions and full-time students (student ID will be required), and 190€ for all others. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, but a number of places will be reserved for employees of FIAF archives. Registrations will open in January 2025.  Note that the course fee includes:

  • Lunch on both days of the Winter School, and refreshments throughout the training,
  • Free tickets to attend many of the screenings of the Cinémathèque française festival (formerly known as "Toute la mémoire du monde" - subject to availability). More details will be available nearer the time of the festival.

Participants are expected to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.
