The summer school "Digital Archives. Data Literacy and Presentation Strategies in Audiovisual Archives" is a 5-day, practice-oriented course aimed at people working in audiovisual archives as well as at everyone else who is interested in enhancing their knowledge about digital environments and processes related to digital archives.

Typically, film archives are not archives in the traditional sense, but rather hybrid institutions that, due to their history and the complexity of film rights, often face major challenges when it comes to cataloguing, metadata management, transparency, and accessibility.

The ongoing process of digitalization presents film archives with the necessity of changing their workflows, strategies, and policies and of providing their staff with additional training. In order to support people and institutions with more knowledge, we decided to establish the "Digital Archives" Summer School in collaboration with Bundesarchiv and Deutsche Kinemathek as well as with support from FIAF. The second edition focuses on the subject of digital curation.

FIAF will award three scholarships covering the full participation fee. Travel and accommodation costs must be covered by the applicants themselves. Applications for these scholarships are open until 29 May.
