Latest Issue of the FIAF Journal of Preservation (#97, October 2017)

The articles in this very rich issue of the FIAF Journal of Film Preservation include: the report on the FIAF Winter School in Paris (devoted to the programming of archive materials), management of audiovisual cataloguing and metadata in the 21st century (a report on the Potsdam Workshop), the evolution of the role of the film librarian as discussed in an event held immediately prior to the Los Angeles Congress, 35mm film programming in the digital era, personal collections now held by film museums, and the very enthusiastic speech by director Christopher Nolan when he accepted this year’s FIAF Award at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles. The exciting articles that open this issue – identifying and understanding the many versions of La Vie de Jésus and the search for the lost colours of 1920s Albatros Films – sit alongside anniversaries (the 70th anniversary of the Fondazione Cineteca Italiana in Milan, and the 40th anniversaries of the North West Film Archive in Manchester and the Cineteca del Friuli in Gemona), and tributes to our late colleagues and friends John Kuiper, Aito Mäkinen, and Maria Rita Galvã.
