From March 27 to April 1, 2017, INCAA (Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales) and CINAIN (Cinemateca y Archivo de la Imagen Nacional), in collaboration with FIAF, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata, will host a six-days Film  Preservation & Restoration School to provide film preservation and restoration training to help safeguard Latin American cinematic heritage.

Since 2007, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory – in collaboration with FIAF, ACE and UE MEDIA Plus Programme – have hosted the FIAF Film Restoration Summer School in Bologna, Italy, to foster and promote understanding and shared knowledge in the field of film restoration and preservation. Building upon the tremendous success of the summer school, Cineteca di Bologna, L’Immagine Ritrovata, World Cinema Foundation and National Museum of Singapore have joined together to bring for the first time this new programme to Singapore, Asia, in 2013. In 2015, the second Asian edition was organized in Mumbai, India, by the Film Heritage Foundation, FIAF, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata. This year, the project moved to Buenos Aires.

The six-days programme will include screenings, lectures and practical hands-on lessons, conducted by experts from around the world and the staff of L’Immagine Ritrovata. The programme’s goal is to address the current issues surrounding film preservation and restoration while providing participants with practical training of current restoration and archival best-practices.
