One-Day Conference: Digital Cinephilia in the Archives, European cities from grain to pixel

In the context of I-Media-Cities the Greek Film Archive in collaboration with the Laboratory of Audiovisual Media of the Department of Communication and Media Studies, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, organise on the 22 October 2018 the one day conference Digital Cinephilia in the Archives: European Cities from grain to pixel.

I-Media-Cities is an ambitious and innovative research project that strives to be a cross-border, cross-language platform for the study of the history and urban development of large European cities, through access to audiovisual collections that depict urban spaces. The partners come from nine cities – Athens, Barceleona, Bologna, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Stockholm, Vienna, Turin.

In the one day conference theoretical and methodological issues of the relatively new academic field of digital humanities will be addressed. Also, research partners from I-Media-Cities will provide their reflections on working in and with the platform. European archivists will discuss the importance of I-Media-Cities in terms of European cultural heritage policies as well as future synergies.
