2016 Film Restoration Summer School

The 7th FIAF Film Restoration Summer School took place from 25 June to 15 July 2016.

It was organized by the Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata film restoration and conservation laboratory in cooperation with FIAF and the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE).

Like previous Summer Schools, the 2016 course was aimed at specialists, film archive staff and students. During the participant selection process, priority was given to those working in FIAF and ACE member institutions.

The Film Restoration Summer School 2016 was structured along three main course steps:

  • Film restoration online theory course: distance learning, 11 May 15 June;
  • Theory lectures, FIAF congress and Il Cinema Ritrovato film festival, Bologna, Cineteca facilities, 25 June 2 July;
  • Restoration practice classes: Bologna, L'Immagine Ritrovata, 4 July to 15 July

 The online theory course was prepared with the help of the FIAF Techincal Commission. L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory’s highly specialized staff was closely involved in the intensive 2-week training programme and internship. Participants were divided into groups and worked in each of the laboratory's departments.
