Women, Cinema and Film Archives
This symposium proposes a meeting that reveals the crossroads between the struggles for equity and archival work, to produce a historical review of the patriarchal imprint in our practices and devise strategies that transform the shared present with a view to a more dignified future for people dedicated to film preservation and their audiences.
With sessions dedicated to the impulse of women in the safeguarding of film heritage; good practices for gender equality in the archive; the celebration of women pioneers and agents of change in preservation; the gender analysis of film collections and curatorial work, as well as the recognition of the heterogeneity of women’s professions in cinema, the responsibility of this symposium is to propose another path, one that complements the narrative of the recovery with a compass radically different from that of the historical continuation.
We have two days full of possibilities. May dialogue and listening lead to a symposium that will enable us, more and more, to imagine practices of visibility and recognition.
