FIAF Training & Outreach Programme

The FIAF Training and Outreach Program has been established to formally and consistently continue the work FIAF has done in the field of training and support for decades through past or current programs (the TC training initiative, the FIAF Summer School now held in Bologna, the Film Archives in Africa Program, the “Escuela sobre ruedas” program, etc).

The main goal of the Program is to meet the identified worldwide needs for education and training in the areas of film and moving image archiving, management, preservation, digitization and exhibition.

In September 2016, FIAF appointed David Walsh, Head of Digital Collections at the Imperial War Museums and Head of the FIAF Technical Commission since 2011, as FIAF Training & Outreach Coordinator, on a part-time basis. His contract has been renewed every year since then.

In order to deal with the many different requests for assistance received from archives and archivists by the FIAF Secretariat more effectively and more fairly, we have developed a fillable PDF form (available in the three official FIAF languages below) which anyone needing assistance in any of the multiple areas of support which we hope to provide will be able to fill out and return to us. Once the form received, we promise to get back to you as soon as possible.

If you have any questions on the FIAF Training & Outreach Programme or the fillable form, please contact us at training@fiafnet.org.
