Moving images are part of our most cherished but also fleeting cultural heritage. As well as capturing memory and history, they carry myriad other important data. How is this audiovisual material preserved for future generations and how is it best presented today as a source of information, culture and entertainment, to a general or specialised audience?
The Professional Master's programme in Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image addresses these questions in theory and practice. Students spend the first year acquiring critical knowledge, which is put into practice during an internship during the second year.
