Film and Data EXPOSED

Cinema 1, ACMI , Federation Square, Melbourne

Featuring: The University of Melbourne Research Platform Services, ACMI, Arcitecta, and ANDS.

Over 100 hours of VCA short films from the VCA Film and Television Archive have been digitised by the ACMI archives team. Sharing and re-using film related data will give experts and researchers unparalleled access to film, and historical data in which to extract greater meaning. State-of-the-art technology has been designed to attribute specific tags to each film on a micro level, to provide a specific piece of video content for research and reuse. This will open up new opportunities for collaborations between data creators, film historians, filmmakers, and data users to discover, ingest, refine, and understand the component data and metadata elements of film, television, and online video records.

This opening night event will show how researchers, IT and the creative arts can work together to use data to create dynamic and interdisciplinary connections.
