Film History and Archives in the Digital Age

Film History and Archives in the Digital Age

 

Film archives provide concise knowledge of films and film history. In this digital age, it is important that these resources are available online and in the best cases, also the films themselves. This panel will explore two projects realising this challenge.

 

Kay Hoffmann from the Documentary Film Centre (Haus des Dokumentarfilms) in Stuttgart and Inga Selck from the Filmmuseum Potsdam will present a database of German non-fiction films (www.db.dokumentarfilmgeschichte.de). It is one result of a long-term project “History of Documentary Film in Germany 1945 to 2005”, supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG). This database makes it possible to systematically search for documentary films for free, for the first time. After seven years of filmographic work, there are now around 15,000 records of German non-fiction films produced after 1945.

 

Gunnar Dedio from PROGRESS will present the new online archive platform www.progress.film, which hosts more than 17,000 films produced between 1946 and 1990 by DEFA and/or distributed by PROGRESS, the sole film distributor of East Germany. It is the only collection worldwide that pools the entire film production of a country on one platform. PROGRESS invested heavily in this bilingual AI-supported archive platform for researchers worldwide, which continuously adds collections from different sources and origins.

Publicity and Press: a Love Story?

Publicity and Press: a Love Story?

 

Documentary filmmakers now are often given the advice that to make our films stand out, win awards and travel the world, we really need to engage publicists. And if we want an international circulation for our film, then we need reviews in the major international trade presses. Festivals also feel the pressure, because without attending international press, their relevance in the international circuit can rapidly diminish. Two film publicists from NOISE Film PR Mijram Wiekenkamp and Dagny Kleber will discuss their relationship with Vladan Petkovic from Cineuropa, debunking myths and giving a concrete glimpse into the mysterious world of film publicity.
