Overview

Film is in a state of rapid change: the transition from analog to digital is profoundly affecting not just filmmaking and film distribution but a number of other facets of the industry, including the ways in which films are archived. In From Grain to Pixel—the first volume in the new Framing Film series from Amsterdam University Press—Giovanna Fossati brings together scholars and archivists to discuss their theories on digitization and to propose new possibilities for future archives.  

         

Editorial Reviews

Tom Gunning
“Giovanna Fossati does more than simply give the most thoughtful, thorough and up-to-date account of the transformation in motion picture archiving over the last decades. She forces us to reconsider the nature of the moving image and prepare for a new era of communication and preservation.”
Paolo Cherchi Usai
 “Scholarly research on film and media is profoundly influenced by the way in which moving images are preserved and made accessible for scrutiny. This fact alone should make Giovanna Fossati’s book mandatory reading for all graduate courses in the field.”
