Today is World Day for Audiovisual Heritage !
It reminds us of the UNESCO recommendation for the safeguarding and preservation of moving images, thus marking the cultural and historical importance of film and television archives.
“Audiovisual archives tell us stories about people’s lives and cultures from all over the world. They represent a priceless heritage which is an affirmation of our collective memory and a valuable source of knowledge since they reflect the cultural, social and linguistic diversity of our communities. They help us grow and comprehend the world we all share. Conserving this heritage and ensuring it remains accessible to the public and future generations is a vital goal for all memory institutions as well as the public at large.” – UNESCO
