Study on the "Challenges of the digital era for film heritage institutions"

Deadline: 1 September 2010 at 16.00

The transition to the digital era has brought about challenges and opportunities that could not have been foreseen in 2005, when the European Parliament and Council adopted a Recommendation on film heritage and the competitiveness of related industrial activities. Most European films are made with the help of public funding, in line with the Cinema Communication, applying the State aid exemption for culture and heritage conservation.

However, the digital era challenges the traditional ways of collecting and preserving film heritage. 80% of silent films are estimated to be lost. Unless action is taken, the same could happen to digitally-born and digitised films. At the same time, new technologies open new ways of providing access to film heritage that we could have not imagined five years ago.

In addition to new technologies, societal changes are triggering increasing demand for accessing film heritage. The role of film heritage institutions is evolving from the traditional model of the "sealed box", conserving fragile film materials for posterity in their vaults, towards a new "full access" model, whereby they become well-springs of film culture. The main difficulty encountered during this transition is the lack of legal mechanisms permitting the cultural and educational use of the films and related film material in an efficient manner.

In this context, the European Commission has launched a call for tenders in order conduct a study on the "Challenges of the digital era for film heritage institutions". The aim of the study is to provide a detailed description of the challenges that film heritage institutions are facing in relation to all areas of their activities, as well as the opportunities that digital technologies offer.
