Presentation of the course

In March 2024, 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 9th edition of the Winter School will take place on-site only, at the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé and at the Cinémathèque, on 11 & 12 March 2024, just before the Cinémathèque française festival (13-17 March 2024).

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.
