Heritage Studies: Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

During their training students of the Preservation and Presentation programme consider different types of moving images: cinema, television and media art, in both analogue and digital manifestations.

Moving images are part of our most cherished but also fleeting cultural heritage. As well as capturing time and place, memory and history, they carry a myriad of other important data. How is this audiovisual material preserved for future generations and how is it best presented today as a source of information to a general or specialised audience? The Professional Master's in Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image addresses these questions in theory and practice. Students spend the first year acquiring critical knowledge, which is put into practice during an internship during the second year.
The city of Amsterdam provides an ideal location for this academic programme, and for an internship. It is affiliated with various local and regional audiovisual institutes (e.g. Eye Fim Institute) to highlight the role of preserving and presenting moving images as key activity of archives, film museums, festivals, distributors, broadcasting companies and film studios. Archives and festival organisers not only supervise student interns, but are also in charge of some of the academic courses, contributing with a professional background to the development of an effective curriculum.
