Pyrenees-Mediterranean Film Memory at PICURT Festival
From the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean: South Film Memory crosses borders.
Two years ago already, the Cinémathèque de Toulouse and Institut Jean Vigo joined together to create the web portal « South Film Memory ». The aim was primarily to find movies dealing with southern regions of France that people, companies and / or non-profit institutions were still holding.
Don’t throw film away !
Don’t throw film away!
« Don’t throw film away! » is the slogan of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), taken from the Manifesto that was published on the occasion of its 70th anniversary. Following this call the Cinémathèque de Toulouse and the Institut Jean Vigo have joined forces and launched a project to save the filmic memory of the Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrénées and Aquitaine Regions. First, we try to find and/or (re)discover films that private persons, companies or associations may still have in their possession, often forgotten in moist cellars or hot attics, in order to preserve them in the best conditions.
