FIAF - Journal of Film Preservation, issue #95

Dec 08 2016

As specialists in film restoration and digital archiving we're a supporter of FIAF. The International Federation of Film Archives has been dedicated to the preservation of and access to the world's film heritage since 1938. R3store are working on a worldwide mission to restore film to its former glory and update it for a new digital global audience hungry for knowledge of the past.

If you've not seen their website previously, FIAF is a great source of knowledge and resources, with pages like the FIAF Glossary of Filmographic Terms, which is intended to assist film catalogers and others in identifying and translating credit terms appearing both on screen and in documentation sources.

The current edition includes 13 languages, seven (English, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, Italian, and Portuguese) with complete terms and definitions, two (Finnish and Lithuanian) with complete terms (without definitions), and another four (Danish, Dutch, Hungarian, and Russian) with partial terms and no definitions. Check out the FIAF Glossary here and test your knowledge…
