Screening the Future Conference 2012

Play, Pause and Press Forward

May 21-23 2012

University of Southern California, Los Angeles

Organised by the PrestoCentre Foundation, in collaboration with the University of Southern California Shoah Institute and Digital Repository. Cost: $400 ($325 until April 1), $240 for PrestoCentre members; includes Lost Landscapes screening night.

This annual international conference brings together more than 250 archivists, production-company reps, filmmakers, TV producers, scientists, and others to develop approaches to digital audiovisual storage. Under this year’s theme, Play, Pause and Press Forward, the conference will address the current status of audiovisual archives, their IT challenges, future readiness, and other issues.

In sessions and master classes, the conference will address such issues as that most institutions haven’t thought through the implications of digitizing their holdings, and gathering additional material. “Re-orienting operations around data requires changes not just in technology, but in management and culture,” and the solutions will need to differ from one type of organization to another, the conference announcement says.

Also on the agenda:

– matching users’ expectations with institutional capabilities.

– setting priorities in a changing media environment.

– building systems that can adapt to changing priorities.
– running small archives and specialized collections
– scaling digital-preservation competence
– affording current and future costs, endowment pricing, contracts, and fundraising.

Details and registration are online.
