FPRWI 2020 Goes Online!

Applications are now open. To apply and check the full programme, visit the Film Heritage Foundation website.

The insidious effect of the pandemic has put paid to Film Heritage Foundation’s plans of conducting the Film Preservation & Restoration Workshop India (FPRWI 2020) in association with FIAF in 2020. We had zeroed in on Kerala as the next destination for the sixth iteration of our travelling school, but unfortunately it is not to be.

The annual workshops in India have built a movement for saving film heritage not just in our country but in the subcontinent and while there has been a quantum leap in awareness and training over the last five years, there is so much more to do. Having received several enquiries about our next training initiative and not wanting to lose the momentum we have built, we decided that even though we couldn’t conduct a physical hands-on training workshop this year, we could try the new normal of online training with the support of FIAF and a few of our wonderful faculty and experts from around the world.


Session details

One-hour online sessions inclusive of a 15-minute Q & A will be held in September, covering a range of topics including “Surviving The Pandemic for Film Archives”, “Film Digitization”, “Cataloguing”, “Paper and Photograph Conservation for Film Archives” amongst others to be taught by international experts.

Confirmed trainers include:

  • David Walsh - Training & Outreach Coordinator, FIAF & Digital Preservation Consultant, Imperial War Museums
  • Mick Newnham - Tutor at Charles Sturt University
  • Reto Kromer - Head of AV Preservation by reto.ch & Lecturer at the Bern University of Applied Sciences
  • Natasha Fairbairn – Information Specialist, British Film Institute and member of the FIAF Cataloguing and Documentation Commission
  • Marianna de Sanctis - Head of Film Repair, L’Immagine RitrovataDavide Pozzi - Director, L’Immagine Ritrovata
  • Sophie Hunter – Objects Conservator, Academy Museum of Motion Pictures
  • Renee Kiefer – Assistant Registrar, Permanent Collections, Academy Museum of Motion Pictures


These training sessions will be open for applications to alumni of the earlier workshops as well as to conservators and archivists working in the field of film preservation from India and all other countries of the subcontinent. Registration is free, however there will be a selection procedure as there are a limited number of participants that we can accommodate.
