Centre Audiovisuel Simone de Beauvoir

28 place Saint-Georges
F-75009 Paris
+33 1 53 32 75 08
Website

The mission of the Simone de Beauvoir Audiovisual Centre (CASdB) is to gather films and videos about women's issues and feminism starting in the seventies.


Rising from the enthusiasm of May 68 and the Estates General of the cinema, interventionist cinema also rose from its ashes, with the desire to film reality as it happens and to act on the protest movements. In this effervescent and activist context, women directors seized on the cinema's new resources such as video, using Sony's Portapak movie cameras. These directors accompanied their history and battles and took charge of their own representation. Like Virginia Woolf who demanded "a room of her own" feminists demanded "a camera of their own".
More or less everywhere in France, video collectives — un-incorporated, fluctuating and innovative — grew.
It is on those bases, with the concern of video tapes conservation and with the aim to increase production, that the Simone de Beauvoir Audiovisual Centre was funded in 1982 by Carole Roussopoulos, Ioana Wieder, both filmmakers and feminist video pioneers, and Delphine Seyrig, actress and activist film director.

Today,  the CASdB's missions include:

- The preservation and restoration of a collection of more than 1,200 titles about Women’s history, struggles, art, creation and LGBTQI rights.
- Film circulation and non profit distribution through programming and projections in France and abroad.
- Workshops in schools and high-schools on image analysis, gender stereotypes in film, history of women's rights through feminist cinema and pedagogical internet site : Genrimages
- Production of new footage
- Avaibility of audiovisuals contents
- Films distribution and sale of images; video editing.
The film collection of the Simone de Beauvoir Audiovisual Center is composed of many previously unseen and original works. The collection is a fundamental part of the audiovisual heritage of the 1970-1980 period
We continue to enrich the collection with 21st century productions.

Website

The Corsican Cinematheque, under the authority of the region of Corsica, collects, preserves and promotes films of the past time but also contributes to create memories and testimonies for the future thanks to the "regional legal deposit' (movie works produced nowadays in Corsica).


Films, posters, press-books, photographs, drawings, screenplays, books...are gathered to constitute this saved film heritage.
Movies with Corsica as the subject, movies filmed in Corsica, made by corsican people, the beginnings of cinema, exploitation and distribution of movies in the island...
But it looks also on the Mediterranean and more particularly on Italy. And other islands and other seas... as the films linked to Napoleon and Colomba lead to America...
The amateur film is a special case and the approach of the Corsican Cinematheque is to pass on a regional heritage. These films have been entrusted by their author or their family and these personal and intimate images gained a collective dimension and became witnesses of an period, a story and a region.
The Cinematheque has also an important activity in its movie theater named "Abel Gance" in Porto-Vecchio and throughout the island where it has developed many partnerships with cultural institutions. It also presents a selection of representative movies in the towns and villages of the island with the "Cinémathèque Itinerante".
It also assumes an important pedagogical mission : partner of the Movie Option to the Baccalaureate, partner of a high school participating in 'Cinéma, cent ans de jeunesse' of the Cinémathèque Française, survey of the associations entrusted with the pedagogical projects Ecole et Cinéma, Collège au Cinéma and LAAC (high schools).

Fondation Autrefois Genève

CH - 1228 Plan-les-Ouates Geneva

Website

The FONDATION AUTREFOIS GENEVE
 
The Fondation Autrefois Genève was created to preserve the local audiovisual heritage. Thanks to the program of the same name currently broadcasted on Léman Bleu, a swiss television channel based in Geneva, these images remain alive and benefit the generations of today.


The concept of creating a foundation
After 12 years and with the success of this program, the question arose of the sustainability of this precious heritage, rich in emotions, which is managed to date in an artisanal way. The impressive number of images requires a more professional review of its storage and sequencing.
This unique audiovisual capital belongs to those who entrusted it to us to serve as a testimony of the past to future generations. This is the main reason that led us to consider creating the Foundation "Autrefois Genève”.

The creation of the Foundation is part of a voluntary approach to preserving the audiovisual heritage belonging to the history of Geneva and its surroundings.
Professionalized management of audiovisual data will allow information to be made available immediately for communication and event planning projects. It will thus help to bring to life and enhance Geneva's heritage.
 
The mission of the Fondation Autrefois Genève
The mission of the Fondation Autrefois Genève is to highlight Geneva's heritage. In order to do this, it acquires, retains, shares and makes available to the public and its partners all audiovisual and documentary media related to Geneva and its region.
The Foundation is aimed at an audience sensitive to Geneva's heritage who wishes to discover it, tell it and share it. It is also aimed at schools and academic circles for the provision of teaching materials. It is also a real information tool for the media, municipalities, businesses that want to know, take ownership and bring local heritage to life.
 
Its commitments:
• The acquisition, conservation, digitization, sequencing and enhancement of the audiovisual and documentary heritage.
• Production of educational programs and capsules using archive images and sounds.
• The provision of images on a digital platform and their use for animations or in the context of organizing events.
• The creation of a community of financial and participatory support in Autrefois Genève.
 
A Board of 3 members makes up the management of the Foundation and an administrative structure is in charge of coordinating all actions.

Created in 1988 to compile an audiovisual memory bank of Paris, the Forum des Images has since celebrated cinema and moving pictures of all kinds: feature and animated films, documentaries, shorts, television series, computer films… through thematic film programs, film festivals or special events, and a collection of over 6,000 hours of filmed material.


The institution began by bringing together a collection of films about the city, shot as early as 1895, with the greatest possible variety of origins, genres and media.
Among the various films collections offered to the audience, le Forum des Images has one specifically dedicated to amateur and family films.
In 1989, a first amateur films collect campaign was launched. Hundreds of films were gathered for “Objectif amateur”, a TV broadcost hosted by Pierre Tchernia, passionate about cinema and President of the Forum des images during 20 years.
This film collection intended to historians, filmmakers and even to the general audience has not stopped growing and now gathers over 2800 films.
Family films, sometimes shot over several decades, include documentaries, often relating important or historical events, animated and fiction films.

For the time only 15% of the films can be consulted in our viewing room on individual screens, by one person or several, and some of them can even be viewed on our website. But still, an important valorization work needs to be done, but all of these films can be viewed on appointment.

Home Movies - Italian Amateur Film Archive

via Sant’Isaia 18
I-40123 Bologna
+39 051 339 72 43
Website

The Italian Amateur Film Archive was born in 2002 with the mission to preserve and harness the amateur and family film, a still hidden and inaccessible audiovisual heritage. The Archive was founded and is managed by the Home Movies Association, a research group involved in promoting and organizing the study, storage and enhancement of amateur and family film.


Italian Amateur Film Archive is the first Italian institution for the preservation and enhancement of the rich audiovisual amateur heritage, still unpublished for its main portion, coming almost exclusively from families and non-professional contexts, and until recently wrongly considered minority. Home Movies is today the only organization in Italy of study and collection of amatorial film materials throughout the nation, able to grant the preservation of the original audiovisual patrimony in appropriate rooms.

The archive collects and disseminates an hidden heritage, preventing dispersion and oblivion. This includes family films, but also documentaries and fiction films - often made by skilled amateur filmmakers -, works of experimental and independent filmmakers, scientific films and other materials. In most cases these films document the everyday live of people who visually record their holidays, trips, collective rituals, public events, work, landscape.
The audiovisual documentation, private and unpublished, from the Archive collection is therefore a huge and extraordinary representation of Italian history, a heritage that is increasingly published and disseminated through projects and initiatives. Numerous scholar researches had the Archive as subject and many film and art productions already used the images, in particular for the production of documentary films. From the archive materials Home Movies also produces, independently or in partnership, cross-media and audiovisual products, editions of films, documentaries, installations.
Since 2008 Home Movies is member of the European network INEDITS, while in 2011 the Italian Amateur Film Archive was declared by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism (MiBACT) "significant archive of historical interest".

Pyrenees-Mediterranean Film Memory

“Don’t Throw Film Away” is the slogan launched by the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) on the occasion of its 70th anniversary in 2008. The partnership forged in 2012 by La Cinémathèque de Toulouse and Institut Jean Vigo – both members of FIAF – in the interests of the film memory of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrenees and Aquitaine regions is fully in line with this perspective. Its purpose is above all to (re)discover films that individuals, companies and/or associations still have in their possession but which are often piled up in damp cellars or in overheated attics, in order to preserve them in the best conditions.


Pyrenees-Mediterranean Film Memory

Don’t Throw Film Away” is the slogan launched by the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) on the occasion of its 70th anniversary in 2008. The partnership forged in 2012 by La Cinémathèque de Toulouse and Institut Jean Vigo – both members of FIAF – in the interests of the film memory of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrenees and Aquitaine regions is fully in line with this perspective. Its purpose is above all to (re)discover films that individuals, companies and/or associations still have in their possession but which are often piled up in damp cellars or in overheated attics, in order to preserve them in the best conditions.

In 2014, thanks to the support from the Euroregion, Filmoteca de Catalunya and Arxiu del So i de la Imatge of Majorca have joined this platform to improve it with outstanding audiovisual documents in the valorisation, through images, of Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.

Films in the traditional formats can keep for a long time, provided they are subjected to the appropriate treatment; however, if they are not carefully treated and stored, the film surface is exposed to different kinds of damage (scratches, dust, mould…) that render them difficult or simply impossible to use. Film libraries have the technical resources and skills needed to save and preserve films in good conditions. The films thus recovered through a communication, awareness and long-term collection work are thoroughly cleaned, repaired and, in some cases, digitized.

The collaboration between these four archives now allows to draw attention to the historical links between the communities of Catalonia, Midi-Pyrénées, Languedoc-Roussillon and the Balearic Islands, and rediscover an image of the past of these four partner regions. The films, digitized and shared online, are indeed powerful witnesses to a transregional cultural reality, made visible and accessible to all.

This portal aims to improve every month with new discoveries and our work will move.

Normandie Images

Website

Normandie Image's Audio-visual Memory has for aim to save and exhib film archives and audio-visual documents of professional's and amateur's heritage, having as thematic or background the Normandie.


Initiated by the IRIS (Institut Régional de l'Image et du Son) in 1986, it has been working since that date to find and make discover, in particular through films qualified as Inédits (not originally intended for distribution in professional circuits of the audiovisual) a collective memory through these documents tracing the events of local life (amateur filmmakers being for a long time the only providers of regional images before the existence of television channels).

Each film is the subject of documentary files which, entered in this database, allow by the coupled interrogation - keywords and sections - to quickly access a choice of targeted documents.
In concrete terms, more than 3,800 film rolls of different formats (9.5mm, 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm) are the subject of deposit contracts, and are kept on site in premises specific to their backup. More than 220 depositors: organizations, schools, professionals but also individuals entrusted us with their documents. This collection is mainly for films focusing on the collective memory of work, rural and urban development, or simply on everyday life.

The technical means:
- a conservation room (to the standards of the Service des Archives du Film de Bois d'Arcy);
- A viewing room in the various media for expertise (all film and video formats);
- A scanning station in HD;
- an assembly room
- a database
Digitization:
- in order to facilitate access to the preserved documents, a digitisation plan for all amateur films deposited at Normandie Images is in progress.
In June 2019, the Agence régionale Normandie Images and the Etablissement public de coopération culturelle (EPCC), La Fabrique de patrimoines en Normandie, launched the Mémoire normande website: https://www.memoirenormande.fr/. This site includes heritage funds, unpublished films (over 3,000) and photographs (over 25,000), collected, documented and digitized by the two regional structures.

The Normandy Memory Common Fund offers the general public the opportunity to freely view images filmed or photographed by Norman amateurs between 1920 and 1980. Searchable by keywords, themes and geolocation, still and animated images offer another perspective on Normandy. Indeed, these online archives allow Internet users an ethnographic, historical, cultural and social appropriation of Normandy from the immediate First World War (launch in 1922 of the 9.5 mm Pathé-Baby camera) to the present time.

Actors of higher education and research, image education, tourism and especially general public consult thousands each month this tool of cultural democratization of the filmic and photographic heritage amateurs regional (since the portal opened in June 2019: nearly 50,000 different visitors, 87,000 visits for more than 1.5 million page views).
Currently, there are more than 3500 films available online

Normandie Images is supported by the Normandy Region and the Ministry of Culture and Communication for its missions in favor of the image.
