La nascita di un archivio per il cinema amatoriale: il caso dell’associazione Home Movies
| COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2005 - 3. Il metodo e la passione. Cinema amatoriale e film di famiglia in Italia
The experience of the Associazione Home Movies in the national panorama takes the shape of a concept for an archival model dedicated to amateur cinema and in particular to family films (in reduced 8mm, Super8, 16mm and 9.5mm formats). The archive is so conceived that it can be reconfigured to suit the project the Association has in mind. It is not intended only to preserve materials, nor is it a film library in the strict sense,
a closed space accessible only to scholars and film-lovers, but a facility devoted to historical research at all levels and open to participation by those who so far have preserved the private memory on film: individual citizens, film buffs or their relatives, who wish to make public and share this cultural heritage. It is a place where this memory can be recorded, re-elaborated and disseminated.
