Amateur film in the countries of the Eastern block

Published Monday October 27 2014

The Czech National Film Archive, in cooperation with the European Archive Association Inédits (Inédits: Amateur Films/Memory of Europe), organizes a three day international conference focussing on the conservation and presentation of amateur and family films from October 30 to November 1, 2014.

The meeting, held in the Prague cinema Ponrepo, centers on the history of non-professional cinematography in the countries of the former socialist block and on the current situation in archiving this specific film material.

Three evening projections are part of the programme, offering three different examples on how to make a public screening of old amateur and family films. More information can be found on the webpage of cinema Ponrepo ( www.bio-ponrepo.cz ).
