Synopsis of Programme
We use films to tell stories of our lives, be it big budget productions of epic tales, independent films for a more selected audience or even the home movie filled with memories. We use this medium to entertain, educate and enthrall audiences big and small.
But will these films last forever in the format they are in? In the years to come will I still be able to replay my favourite old movie or even look back at that sentimental home video.
This is where film preservation and archiving has an important part to play. To Ensure our creative works and cinematic treasures last for generations to come, we need to ensure these films are stored and treated correctly.
Join the Asian Film Archive in a discussion to better understand film preservation and archiving. Discover the characteristics of the different film formats so that you can better take care of your creative works, and watch the "before and after" clips of a restored film.
Come and discover a part of the film industry you may have taken for granted.
This event is jointly organised by NTU Libraries and Asian Film Archive.
