Project

Silent Film Festivals

Goal: This project explores the work of silent film festivals today. It agues that their programs shape how we look at, think about, and engage with media industries. The first iteration of the project was published as a series of interviews in Feminist Media Histories in 2016 where I interviewed
Bryony Dixon (British Film Institute National Archive)
Giovanna Fossati (EYE Film Institute, Amsterdam),
Karla Gramann (Kinothek Asta Nielsen, Frankfurt)
Meg Labrum (National Film and Sound Archive, Canberra)
Mariann Lewinsky (Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna)
Elif Rongen-Kaynakçi (EYE EYE Film Institute, Amsterdam).

Date: 1 January 2016

added an update
With Richard Abel, in 2019 I organised a program of Mistinguett films at Pordenone. Because of covid, our second program last year was push to next year (2022). This work has also helped inform my current ms for UCP.

added 8 research items
Today, questions about online access to media history, digital research infrastructure, and cultural and political pedagogy have come to the fore. A host of related questions has acquired a new urgency: What is lost and gained in the shift from physical to digital archiving? What and how do archives preserve, and how do they curate public access? How do we search for digital material? Which tools are used to modify and limit our search options, and what does this tell us about digital networks and our relationships to them?
