The Data-Driven Festival: Recordkeeping and Archival Practices
- 18 Downloads
Film festivals have been investigated from a wide range of perspectives; however, there is a gap in our understanding of how festivals manage data and records, including ephemeral online materials. A holistic understanding of film festival records is important for historians and film studies scholars interested in documenting and preserving the history of festivals. This chapter explores issues and questions related to the artefacts of film festivals offering a taxonomy of the materials which can be archived and presents the collaboration of Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and Duke University as a case study and possible model to follow.
