*Available in Spanish and French via Interprefy 

The Save Your Archive (SYA) program is one of the flagship initiatives of FIAT/IFTA. The divided into two slots session will serve to briefly introduce the SYA to the audience, to summarize the most recent SYA project orchestrated by the The National Archive of Zimbabwe (NAZ) that allowed to save 330 hours of unique film records and, last but not least, to creat space for a pitching session of the SYA 2020 edition of the Save Your Archive with Partners.

The aim of the SYA pitching session is to create an opportunity for the SYA 2020 applicants to fully present their projects and thus to allow the SYA Partners to better understand their specificities and to have a moment to engage into a discussion before the final selection is made. The rules of the pitching session are simple. Each applicant is requested to pre-record a pitch in a form of a video that will be used during the session to introduce the submitted project. The presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A session with the SYA Partners present.

The exchange is also open to a wider public not directly involved in the selection process.

This session will consist of:

  • 16.30 - 16.50: an introduction to the FIAT/IFTA Save Your Archive initiative, incl. a testimony by Mr. Livingstone Muchefa of the National Archives of Zimbabwe, recipients of the previous Save Your Archive grant.
  • 16.50 - 17.30: 3 pitches of projects candidating for the new grant:
     1) Proimágenes Colombia - Juana Suarez and Juan Sébastian Quebrada
     2) The Albanian National Film Archive (AQSHF) - Iris Elezi
     3) Centro de Estudios Espigas, Tarea-IIPC, UNSAM/Fundación Espigas - Melina Cavalo and Rita Falcone
