World Theatre Day

World Theatre Day is an annual celebration of everything related to the stage. Started in 1961 by the International Theatre Institute, each year various national and international theatre events are organized to mark this occasion.

Theatre captures the essence of our societies, our traditions, and our culture better than perhaps any other art-form, and though performances end, plays live on for as long as they are loved and cherished. They are preserved through repetition, or described in books, or captured on film and stored in archives.

These documents; be it the plays themselves, or everything that surrounds them, are an important part of our history. We’re proud to present these memories from the past, now made available again though EUscreen.

We hope you’ll enjoy these few fun and interesting clips about European theatre from the last few decades! Feel free to search our collection for plenty more videos about theatre, dance and performance, on EUscreen.eu!

Unlocking Broadcast Archives from Eastern Europe

Author: Maria Drabczyk
Bucharest

 

How to show and discuss difficult history? Something that is still fresh and vivid in the minds of older generation but often tends to be omitted by the younger one? Is the socialist past of Central and Eastern Europe still a topic for researchers? Those and more questions about the relevance of the archives as witnesses of the past served as a starting point for discussion during the ‘Unlocking Broadcast Archives from Eastern Europe’ seminar in Bucharest.

EUscreenXL announces its second and final international conference to be hosted on the 3 and 4 December 2015 at the National Audiovisual Institute in Warsaw, Poland.

During two eventful days the EUscreen network will involve archivists, curators, broadcasters and researchers to discuss the benefits and challenges arising from the openness of archives and collections in the digital age. The availability of audiovisual heritage online provides new possibilities of curation, participation, exchange and transnational cooperation that not yet have been fully explored.
We invite you to gather in Warsaw to participate in moderated debates, workshops and face to face discussions — and leave with a richer vision of how to create efficient partnerships aimed at forward-looking curation of audiovisual heritage and at a deeper involvement of users.

Mark your calendar now and stay up to date on the must-attend event for media and audiovisual heritage enthusiasts.
