Newsreels have become increasingly important to historians, programme-makers, researchers and others in providing precious actuality footage of a specific event, custom or personality.
This volume brings together some 30 essays and other contributions on the subject of the newsreel from international members of the Federation Internationale des Archives du Film/International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and other experts. Based on papers delivered at the 1993 FIAF Symposium "Newsreel collections in film archives", the book provides a stimulating and wide-ranging discussion of and documentation on the history, preservation, cataloguing and particular appeal of this valuable yet vulnerable part of moving image heritage.
