ROUND TABLE : HOW RESEARCH REDEFINES FILM HISTORY
Several European schools and universities have recently developed training courses on issues related to film heritage, archives, their conservation, restoration and, ultimately, their distribution.
Rather than thinking of these courses as preparation for a career or future integration into the profession, we propose to examine the way in which they are, for the students, times of experimentation that can also nourish the work of professional programmers and broadcasters.
Preserved from economic stakes and imperatives, could these training courses not be laboratories for the reactivation of a different cinephile memory and write a history of the cinema, distinct from that retained by the industry?
