What are the major issues and challenges film archives, cinematheques and film museums are bound to face in the Digital Age and at a time when there is an expectation of Access on Demand? Film Curatorship neither offers a scholarly analysis, nor attempts to provide definitive answers to a complex situation involving aesthetic as well as technological, economic and political issues. As a collective text, a montage of dialogues, conversations and exchanges between four professionals representing three generations of film archivists and curators, this book calls for an open philosophical and ethical debate on fundamental questions the profession must come to terms with. What is curatorship, and what does it imply in the context of film preservation and presentation? Is there a concept of the 'film artifact' that transcends the idea of film as 'content' or 'art' in the information age?The four authors of Film Curatorship have agreed to lay bare their concerns, visions, and strategies in a multi-faceted brainstorming session, aimed at fostering an open, non-dogmatic debate on the relationship of film to other forms of moving image and its presentation and preservation in the 21st century.
