Title
Archives and their film collection in a digital world, or: What futures for the analog print?
Author
Abstract
Analog projection is increasingly endangered because strategies such as the Digital Cinema System Specification and Digital Cinema Package champion digital projection. Publicly funded institutions, however, like those in Western Europe whose core mission is still to preserve celluloid prints, must also provide access to themnecessitating the maintenance of analog projection facilities. This articledrawing on the case study of Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourgexplores how modern film archives and cinémathèques can negotiate the current digital climate to keep their celluloid holdings relevant, functional, and accessible to the taxpaying public. Issues such as digitization, audience expectations, and print quality are discussed.
