Programming FIAF Affiliates' Online Film Collections

You are probably aware that a page of the FIAF website maintained by the FIAF Programming and Access to Collections Commission (PACC) references the FIAF affiliates’ websites, YouTube channels and other streaming platforms that provide free access to a wide range of film heritage gems from all over the world – amateur films, documentaries, newsreels, short fiction, animation, recently restored feature films, etc… That’s literally tens of thousands of films for us to enjoy, at a time when so many cinemas are closed and billions (!) of us around the world are confined to our homes with our computers, tablets, and smartphones.

While we are strongly encouraging all film buffs out there to explore the large online film collections of the dozens of platforms referenced on that dedicated webpage, we know that browsing through tens of thousands of titles can be a rather daunting experience. So we thought that we could ask YOU to play programmer and suggest a personal 90-minute programme of films selected from all those freely accessible online. We will then publish it below, for everyone's enjoyment.

If you are interested in contributing to this collective programming exercise, please open and fill in this simple ONLINE FORM. Do add a short introduction explaining your programming choices if you can (it doesn't have to be in English), as well as the title, date (if known), running time and exact URL of each film in your programme, and the institution it comes from. Note that if you are a registered member of the FIAF community and you are logged in, your personal details will already be filled in. Also note that you will be still able to modify or remove your programme even after you have submitted it (you will receive a unique URL by email allowing you to access your form).

The only rules we would like to set are as follows:

  • The total length of the programme must not exceed 90 mins, unless it includes a feature-length film, as the purpose of this exercise is to encourage creative programming within a limited timeframe rather than endless playlists;
  • Please do not include more than one film from any one FIAF affiliate.

You can find below the list of all programmes already submitted (the most recently-submitted one on top).

A la découvertes des trésors du cinéma d'animation (II - long-métrage) (75 min)
Pour les curieux qui ont un peu de temps, un long métrage d’animation hongrois magnifique, l'épopée romantique et psychédélique du réalisateur hongrois Marcell Jankovics. « Ce film raconte les aventures extraordinaires du jeune berger János Vitéz, qui abandonne son village natal pour rejoindre une compagnie de hussards en route pour la France, afin de mieux combattre l’invasion turque. Avec très peu de dialogues, des dessins très stylisés, une palette de couleurs très étendue et une galerie de personnages mythologiques à la forme changeante, "Jànod Vitéz" le premier film d'animation hongrois, est un magnifique voyage. Il s’agit d’une commande officielle, destinée à commémorer le 150 ème anniversaire de Sandor Petofi, poète national. » (http://www.baz-art.org/archives/2019/06/14/37427253.html)

A la découvertes des trésors du cinéma d'animation (I - courts-métrages) (63 min)

Ce programme est une « balade » au sein des collections des différentes archives internationales de la FIAF, à la découverte des trésors qu’elles recèlent en cinéma d’animation. Non thématisé, suivant plutôt un classement chronologique, il témoigne de mes émerveillements et envies de faire découvrir à mon tour ces films.

1.Un des premiers, si ce n’est le premier documentaire animé de l’histoire du cinéma, signé Winsor Mc Cay – créateur de Little Nemo, pionnier du cinéma d’animation (Gertie le dinosaure) et artiste engagé (Le naufrage du Lusitania est un film de propagande recréant le naufrage en 1915 du paquebot britannique RMS Lusitania, lequel n'a jamais été photographié, afin de convaincre les Etats-Unis d’entrer dans la 1ère Guerre mondiale).

2. Pour rester sur les grands pionniers, voici un film du trop rare Segundo de Chomon, l’un des maîtres incontestés des premiers trucages cinématographiques et des débuts de la mise en couleurs des images animées.

3. On saute dans les années 40, avec ce film produit par le ministère britannique de l’Information de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, sur la sécurité routière encourageant les enfants à s’arrêter et à regarder avant de traverser la route.

4. Autre véritable découverte, pour moi qui aime beaucoup les films de marionnettes, une publicité de 1948, dans le fonds de la Cinémathèque suisse.

5. Voici le premier dessin animé thaïlandais réalisé par Payut Ngaokrachang dont je ne sais rien (il a une page wikipedia) ! Une belle curiosité…

6. Au gré de mes pérégrinations, je suis tombée sur le cinéaste d’animation danois Bent Barfod qui a contribué au renouveau de la production d’animation danois (et dont la marque de fabrique est le papier découpé). Une nouvelle cinématographie inconnue à explorer.

7. Petit bond dans les années 70, je découvre, dans les archives du Lichtspiel/ Kinemathek Bern, un très joli film de Bettina Truninger, dessinatrice, peintre, caricaturiste et illustratrice.

8. Pour ceux qui ne le connaissent pas, le grand réalisateur d’animation polonais Jerzy Kucia que j’ai eu le plaisir de fréquenter à plusieurs reprises, est à l’honneur à la Filmoteka Narodowa - Instytut Audiowizualny (FINA).

9. Un passage par le site du Eye Filmmuseum me permet de revoir un peu d’images de William Kentridge. Originaire d’Afrique du Sud, avant tout dessinateur, il est également graveur, sculpteur, cinéaste, acteur et metteur en scène. Son œuvre foisonnante offre une vision tout à la fois poétique et critique de sujets parmi les plus délicats comme la décolonisation, l’Apartheid, les conflits politiques ou le rôle de l’Afrique dans la Première Guerre mondiale.

10. Pour finir, deux œuvres de jeunes cinéastes des années 2010 :

* Dans le fonds d’Indiana University, je visionne un extrait d’un film en volumes à la personnalité forte, signé Kristin Dowell, qui n’est pas sans faire penser au travail des frères Quays.

* A l’époque, la découverte du court métrage d’Adrien Merigeau en festival fut un enchantement, le retrouver et le partager, est une joie : Old Fangs (co-réalisé avec Alan Holly) sélectionné à Sundance en 2010, est petit bijou du film d’animation dont le trait et le style semblent à première vue éloignés de l’univers « celtique » de Tomm Moore mais qui à y regarder de plus près contient déjà de jolies passerelles entre les deux cinéastes.

Let's Go To The Movies! (88 min)
Famously described by Martin Scorsese as "the church of the 20th century", where the masses flock to worship a veritable pantheon of (screen) gods, the cinema has served as a key source of information and entertainment, as a valuable propaganda tool, and as a major place of social interaction - on physical, emotional and intellectual levels - for 125 years. Until only recently, the cinema has been a constant fixture in the lives of human beings of all ages, races, genders and creeds, and has endured even throughout humankind's darkest hours in the past (including two world wars). This programme brings together 14 short films and extracts of various forms and genres in a collective celebration of the dispositif cinema and the act of cinema-going. The films are presented below in chronological order, but viewers are welcome to dip in and out at any point they like. When the inept eponymous character of "Arthème opérateur" (played by Ernst Servaes, who also directs) answers a job ad for a cinema projectionist, chaos ensues. In "Al cinematografo, guardate... e non toccate" (At the Cinema Show), a production of the Turin-based Itala company, it is this time not the projectionist but a licentious audience member who wreaks havoc in the movie theatre. The German propaganda film "Das Kino als Berater" from animation legend Julius Pinschewer presents an advertisement for war bonds as a film-within-a-film. "Running a Cinema", from the British "Memoirs of Miffy" cartoon series, deftly sends up a typical cinema programme of the time. The Finnish educational film "Elokuvateatteri ennen ja nyt" (A Movie Theatre Before And Now) blends documentary and fiction techniques to inform on fire-safety measures at a (then) state-of-the-art cinema. In "Ein Parkett der Prominenten", a cavalcade of Hollywood stars can be seen parading before the camera at the gala premiere of Frank Lloyd's Academy Award-winning biopic "The Divine Lady". "Midt i Byens Hjerte" (At the Heart of the City) depicts the construction of the Palladium cinema in Denmark's capital Copenhagen. Out-take footage from a wartime American newsreel shows a mobile cinema used for entertaining American troops on the front lines being set up. The educational film "Let's Go To The Movies" presents a compact history of the American motion picture industry. Confectionery has been a common fixture of the cinema-going experience since time immemorial, as the silent advertisement for the Lyceum Cinema in Dumfries, Scotland, illustrates. A Hungarian newsreel item from March 1960 humorously demonstrates how not to behave at a cinema screening. A Thai news report from 1st October 1967 documents the introduction of automatic ticket dispensers at local cinemas. Another newsreel extract reports on the re-opening of the refurbished cinema at the Fluminense Federal University in Brazil in 1974. Finally, the short Mexican documentary "Cine Móvil México" chronicles an ambitious mobile cinema project by the Cineteca Nacional to bring the wonder of cinema to the remotest parts of the country.

House: a structure that people live in (68 min)
Newsreels, documentaries, commercials and sponsored films shape this programme as an attempt to observe the multifaceted nature of the house. From a driftwood cabin made by Captain Adelbert Smith in 1929, to a prefabricated house chosen by the Hansen family in 1964, the house as a building varies in conception, construction process, shape, form and function. Focusing on the building process, verbally or visually, these films visit the house as a structure that produces space, shelter and relationships. The house in the programme acts as an experiment, as intellectual property, a work of art, a construction challenge, an opportunity to showcase craftsmanship and as a temple of dreams. The films date from the early 1920s to the late 1960s, with the final film offering a glimpse into what was then the future, into 1999. "So", as Adelbert Smith said in 1929, "I live here now all the time - I'm going to make it my home."

Scaling the Heights! (88 min)
Coming from Scotland, 'The Land of the Mountain and the Flood', I was drawn into the FIAF archives to find films that would take me somewhere far away from that overly romantic view of mists and heather! I wasn't disappointed. I have arranged 13 films chronologically to encourage you to escape and explore. I discovered some quirky examples of film-making in the mountains (try driving a car up one or having a sit down dinner on a bridge between them!) But what really struck me was the beauty of silence. A lot of the films in this selection happen to be silent, and I am in awe of those early pioneers, lugging their camera into dangerous situations to capture snapshots of a time and place now gone. Ascend Mount Hood in Oregon and join a phantom ride through The Lotschberg Tunnel back in the early 1900s at the click of your mouse. Sound features too, of course. For example, the Chilean Spanish commentary on copper mining in the Andes, the unusual music accompanying shepherds in Slovenia, or the intense explanation of rope exercises in the Pyrenees - although I couldn't always understand them such soundtracks inexplicably enhanced the experience of watching the films. Make sure you stay until the very end to watch an awe-inspiring film that brings together imposing scenic shots with sound and fury - this film as well as the others before demonstrate why it is quite unlike any other medium for transporting you to another time and place. (Finally, a thank you to all the FIAF archives for their careful preservation and documentation of all the films selected in this programme. Without the programme notes and catalogue information the films would certainly not be as meaningful)

Booze and Us (84 min)
This compilation highlights the joys and dangers which come with the production and consumption of alcoholic beverages. We see the highly specialized processes of brewing beer, making wine and distilling cognac, followed by the always compulsory tasting at the end. We will be informed about the rich taste of Australian wine, enlightened about the secrets of a Scottish brewery located in the oldest inhabited building of the country and can enjoy the music of the Portuguese field workers while harvesting the grapes. However, each glass comes with the risk of loss of control and making a fool of yourself or in the worst case alcoholism. The second part of this film programme shows, why it is unwise to drink while boating, that too many drinks can make the camera swing in unison with the drunkard, as well as how to handle your liquor properly at an US college party and ultimately how liquor should be dealt with in the eyes of the prohibitionists: spilled out in the street. In between advertisements for Finnish beer, bourbon from New Zealand and others glamorize the ideal world of drinking and enjoying yourself, while the German filmmaker Harun Farocki satirizes the made up world of the commercials in an early student film.

Here is looking at you - KIDS! (84 min)
Children habe been popular "objects" for cameras ever since the beginning of cinema. They appear early in Home Movies, are seen in dramas and comedies as famous child actors or are focused on in educational or political documentaries. One might say that there is a natural affinity between children and cinema. Their (apparent) authenticity conveys truthfulness and charms the spectators. At the same time, they are the target of educational programs that put an end to their genuineness. The eleven films chosen for this programme combine these elements and include Home Movies, fiction films as well as documentaries from 1914 to 1969.

Massimo's Tour of Italy from His Living Room (80 min)
My homeland has been heavily hit. This programme is an hommage and a reminder of the affection Italy receives from the whole World. Almost every FIAF institution holds images coming from there - so I made a choice for the unusual and the aesthetically challenging instead of just going for the "grand tour" pretty postcard effect. Also, I made a point of selecting different formats (Super8, 16mm...) and narratives, have different voices be heard than the usual. What better moment than this, to dig a little deeper, and explore new territories, among the very familiar? So, heavily decayed nitrate film of Venice juxtapose with the fairly tinted frames of an untouched countryside in 1909, breath-taking aerial images of Rome and Pompeii taken from an airship (!) bounce on the deliciously pop colors of the Riviera in the 1950s. And while a solitary guard and his dog practice social distancing patrolling the snow caps of Vallée d'Aoste, it all ends with a kolossal production in Super8, soundtrack and all, with a group of French tourists hopping on and off through the most beautiful sights of Northern Italy. A good memory of what it was like, and a wish to be able to do it again soon. I hope you all enjoy the ride, and thanks again to the institutions for the materials I used. MB (Technical notes: Film 1 Italian intertitles, musical soundtrack. Film 2 Norwegian intertitles, silent. Soundtrack suggestion: Offenbach's 'Barcarolle'. Film 3 Italian intertitles, silent. Soundtrack suggestion: Chopin's 'Fantaisie Impromptu (Op.66)' or The Smashing Pumpkins' 'Tonight, Tonight'. Film 4 English titles, musical soundtrack. Film 5 French voice-over, sound. Film 6 French titles, musical soundtrack. In all cases full comprehension of texts and dialogues is not necessary to follow the narrative or appreciate the content of the films. Enjoy!)

(G)rêve Générale - General Strike (68 min)
From trade union general strikes, to May Day marches, student revolts, queer uprisings, and anarchist riots this program looks at various figures of protest. Cinema and the media (much of the conserved footage are official newsreels) followed and recorded these events, creating an ever-growing archive of socio-political contestation that spans across the history of moving images. In the current global context and after months of multiple and simultaneous uprisings sparking all over the planet, looking back at these images places our bodies today in the continuity of those that lead similar fights before us.

Football! (85 min)
Over the last few weeks, many of us football (soccer) fans have been deprived of football games on television (in the stadium). However, FIAF archives are full of great films about the Beautiful Game. Here's below a programme of films about football. Match reports from all around the world (going back to the start of the last century), documentaries and short fiction about the game, interspersed with a few football-related adverts.
