Making movies is costly and time-consuming. Preserving them is critical.
The Interoperable Master Format (IMF) is a recognized and standardized intermediate format for making and distributing complex audio-visual content, and has emerged as a promising candidate for archiving and preserving it.
The HPA IMF User Group (https://www.imfug.com) is organizing two workshops this fall to explore this complex problem:
- Preserving movies with IMF
- Preserving and re-purposing studio productions using IMF
When: October 25 in Los Angeles, CA, USA
Program chair: Florian Schleich <email@example.com>
Event page: Workshop on preserving and re-purposing studio productions using IMF
Submit your presentation proposals by July 1 at firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions from archives, content producers/owners, product manufacturers and movie professionals are welcome. All submissions should include a short abstract (3-4 sentences) and specify the target event (Amsterdam and/or Los Angeles). Presentations should have a maximum duration of 15 minutes and should focus on archival and preservation use cases and workflows.
These workshops are a unique opportunity to meet experts and implementers, and share ideas, use cases, and requirements. Admission will be open to all, with tickets available starting August 1, 2019.
We are organizing not one, but two workshops tackling the application of IMF to archival workflows.

The deadline for submitting proposed presentations is July 1. Tickets will be made available starting August 1.
