The MA Programme in Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image cooperates with a variety of AV institutions, both in the Netherlands and abroad. These range from media archives, film and contemporary art museums, and festivals, to distribution agencies, broadcasting companies and film studios. Three institutions have a special status within the programme, as they are contracted to contribute to its core courses on a regular basis:
The Netherlands’ centre for film culture, housed in an architectural landmark along the bank of the river IJ in Amsterdam. EYE cares for an extensive, world-famous film collection and has valuable expertise in restoration, research, educational programmes, and international promotion and marketing. It explores new methods and media to inspire young and old, from film professionals to movie lovers.
The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid) is one of the largest audiovisual archives in Europe. The Institute preserves a major part of the Dutch audiovisual heritage and makes it accessible to potential users. The collection totals over 700,000 hours of television, radio, music and film. Apart from functioning as an audiovisual archive for the national broadcasting corporations and others, it also offers a unique media experience for its visitors.
Founded by experts from the former Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMk), LIMA is the international platform for sustainable access to media art. Its experts work towards the maintenance of video, digital and performance artworks to ensure their future presentation. The foundation offers storage and digitisation services, collaborates with artists, museums and universities to carry out research in media art preservation and access, and distributes its own collection.
