What we did last summer: A Retrospective of APEX International Collaborations

Friday, October 25, 6:00 pm
Michelson Theater, 721 Broadway, 6th Floor

Since 2008 the Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program (MIAP) has worked with international archives through the Audiovisual Preservation Exchange (APEX). By promoting collaboration and academic dialogue on film and media preservation, MIAP students, faculty, and alumni have mutually shared knowledge and expertise with hosting countries, generating a unique and vibrant network of archivists, scholars, artists, film enthusiasts, collectors, and students in countries such as Ghana, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Spain, Brazil and Puerto Rico. Over the years, APEX has become a model of cooperation that is currently inspiring similar initiatives in academic and non-academic communities.

This retrospective will showcase short films, clips, and promotional materials from APEX collaborations in those countries. It will also be an opportunity to acknowledge APEX sponsors, benefactors, collaborators and the amazing work of NYU participants and hosting institutions.

Free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
