A Season of Classic Films 2022
The third edition of ‘A Season of Classic Films’ was presented on May 23rd 2022, at the EU Pavilion in Cannes when ACE (Association des Cinémathèques Européennes) reveals details of the new programme running June to December 2022 in European cinemas and online.

A Season of Classic Films

'A Season of Classic Films' is a series of free screenings designed to attract younger audiences to our shared cinematic cultural heritage. The programme looks to raise awareness of the work of European film archives, connecting the public with cinema history and the significance of film preservation. Most of the films are new digital restorations, and some screenings include dynamic elements such as live music performances and educational interactive sessions. All films are available with English subtitles.

Twenty-two film archives from 21 European countries (all ACE members) will participate in the classic film season, and each archive has selected a film or film compilation from their own collection to restore and present.

The film selected by AQSHF is "Concert in 1936" (Saimir Kumbaro, 1978), a film whose original elements have color fading problems and has an immediate need for digital processes to be able to bring the figure back to life and to be ready for projections in digital cinemas.

The novelty of the realization of this project is the involvement of students in the digital processes of image and sound, under the guidance of a restoration expert; a way of fostering interest and desire for the preservation and restoration of film heritage and the formation of new professionals.

The film "Concert in 1936" – the digitally restored version - will be shown in Tirana in November 2022. Also, the film has the opportunity to be selected for the program ArteKino 2023 and to be shown to European audiences on the online television platform

Cinema and online screenings

This year’s ‘A Season of Classic Films’ promises to offer very much an in-person series of events and presentations within European cinemas. Most of the films will also be available online to allow for a greater reach to international audiences, building up on the experience gained during the previous edition.

“The second edition of A Season of Classic Films took place when most of our public venues were closed for long periods of time,” says ACE President Sandra den Hamer, also Director of Eye Filmmuseum. “Nevertheless, European cinematheques actively connected with their audiences through online screenings, new streaming platforms and/or hybrid events. ‘A Season of Classic Films’, as a joint project, again strengthened the collaboration and solidarity between the participating film institutions.”

The Cannes ‘A Season of Classic Films’ presentation took place on May 23 at the EU Pavilion. The event was moderated by Paulina Reizi (Eye Filmmuseum, Coordinator of A Season of Classic Films). Speakers and special guests included Sandra den Hamer (President of ACE and director of Eye Filmmuseum), Sergei Loznitsa (Filmmaker), Claudia Tronnier (Director of the Cinema-Fiction Department at ARTE) and Jay Weissberg (Director of the Pordenone Silent Film Festival).
