FIAT/IFTA World Conference 2021 - Online Edition

The efforts to protect audiovisual heritage from the dangers of decay and technological obsolescence are accelerating globally. Equally, media archives profile themselves as well-placed processors of the endless, expanding stream of digitally born content.

But the past year has shown that we need to be agile, able to adapt to rapid change. We must continue to ensure our remit in acquisition, preservation, access and use is to the fore, so that our collections can deliver on the promise of the social, cultural and economic leverage that they comprise. We must strive to make the digital dividend, the return to society of our efforts, as large, as visible and as viable as possible.

The FIAT/IFTA World Conference will focus on exactly that. We'll show what is at stake locally and globally, we connect colleagues, bring discussions to the next level, create an opportunity for networking and celebrate the profession of media archiving.
