Film Preservation & Restoration School Mexico 2019

October 22-26, 2019
UNAM, Mexico City


Applications are closed and the participants selection will be communicated soon.


From October 22 to 26, 2019, the UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), through its Cultural Dissemination Coordination and the Directorate General of Cinematographic Activities, in collaboration with FIAF, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata, will host a five-days Film Preservation & Restoration School to provide film preservation and restoration training to help safeguard Latin American cinematic heritage.

Since 2007, Cineteca di Bologna and L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory – in collaboration with FIAF and the support of ACE – have hosted the FIAF Film Restoration Summer School in Bologna, Italy, to foster and promote understanding and shared knowledge in the field of film restoration and preservation. Building upon the tremendous success of the summer school, since 2013 a short version of the project has been held outside Italy every two years: the Film Restoration School Asia (Singapore, 2013), the Film Preservation and Restoration School India (Mumbai, 2015), the Film Preservation and Restoration School Latin America (Buenos Aires, 2017) and now the Film Preservation and Restoration Shool Mexico, 2019 (Mexico City).

The five-days programme will include screenings, lectures and practical hands-on lessons, conducted by experts from around the world and the staff of L’Immagine Ritrovata. The programme’s goal is to address the current issues surrounding film preservation and restoration while providing participants with practical training of current restoration and archival best-practices.
