There is no way to learn the craft of a film restorer other than by apprenticeship, as no class at university level would reach this goal. As a matter of fact, since 2007 Cineteca di Bologna – in collaboration with FIAF and ACE – has been promoting and hosting the FIAF Film Restoration Summer School, opening its highly specialized state-of-the-art laboratory, L’Immagine Ritrovata, which has been working in the film restoration industry for over 20 years.
Il Cinema Ritrovato has always been an important platform to present archival film and discuss common problems of preservation and restoration. Also L'Immagine Ritrovata is one of our frequent partners in digitization and restoration projects. So obviously Il Cinema Ritrovato DVD Awards are a great opportunity to present the results of our work and maybe exploit a broader audience for it.

This year during the festival Il Cinema Ritrovato another great event is taking place in Bologna: the 72nd FIAF Congress (22-28 June 2016), hosted by the Cineteca di Bologna. After more than twenty years, the International Federation of Film Archives, dedicated to the preservation of the world's film heritage since 1938, comes back to Bologna with a unique Symposium program (25-26 June) focusing on one main topic: a new life for cinema's past. A theme that also runs through the entire festival and that has been leading, over the past few years, Cineteca di Bologna activities and projects in collaboration with the laboratory L'Immagine Ritrovata.
