Film Preservation & Restoration School India

Saving India’s Cinematic Heritage

From the 22nd to the 28th of February 2015, the Film Heritage Foundation, in collaboration with The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata, will host a one-week Film Restoration School to provide film preservation and restoration training to help safeguard Indian cinematic heritage.

Since 2007, the Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory – in collaboration with FIAF, ACE and UE MEDIA Plus Programme – have hosted the Film Restoration Summer School in Bologna, Italy to foster and promote understanding and shared knowledge in the field of film restoration and preservation. Building upon the tremendous success of the summer school, the Cineteca di Bologna, L’Immagine Ritrovata, World Cinema Foundation and National Museum of Singapore have joined together to bring for the first time this new programme to Singapore, Asia.
This second Asian edition will be held in Mumbai, India. The one-week programme will included screenings, lectures and practical hands-on lessons, conducted by experts from around the world and the staff of L’Immagine Ritrovata. The programme’s goal is to address the current issues surrounding film preservation and restoration while providing participants with practical training of current restoration and archival best-practices.
