The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART) is pleased to present an evening of film preservation demonstrations by independent cinema conservation advocates IndieCollect, co-sponsored with the New York Film/Video Council, New York’s oldest continuously operating non-profit serving the independent film, video and electronic arts community.
Learn how scanning, editorial & color-grading work flows vary based on scanned elements (e.g. single strand negative, A&B roll negative, CRI, prints). IndieCollect digital restorations are converted to 4K DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) for theatrical release, and also into custom formats for preservation and for delivery to online platforms. Digital motion pictures files are backed up to LTO cartridges.
The IndieCollect team will demonstrate its 5K Kinetta Archival Scanner and show before & after comparisons, using film in the restoration pipeline.
A wine & cheese reception will follow from 8 pm.

The New York Film/Video Council (http://www.nyfvc.org), founded in 1946, is New York’s oldest continuously operating non-profit serving the independent film, video and electronic arts community. For 70 years, the Council has been a haven for screenings, panels, and lively discussions. Members include important narrative, avant-garde and documentary filmmakers, programmers, archivists, scriptwriters, critics, professors, animators and others with a passion for film. The NYFVC is run by an entirely volunteer board and spends every penny of dues on programming and events, which are largely FREE for members.
We're excited at this opportunity to bring the New York independent film and archives communities in dialogue.
