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.
The next FIAF Film Restoration Summer School will take place in Bologna in Summer 2018.
• Film restoration online theory course / distance learning: May 9th to June 13th (on Wednesdays).
• Theory lectures and Il Cinema Ritrovato film festival: Bologna, June 23rd to July 1st
• Restoration practice classes: Bologna, L’Immagine Ritrovata, July 2nd to 13th
