Subject: UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage - Public consultation
UNESCO has launched a public consultation on the objectives, practicalities,
costs and expected results of a "World Day for Audiovisual Heritage" to be
celebrated annually on 27 October to build global awareness of the various
issues at stake in preserving the audiovisual heritage.
In response to a proposal by the Czech Republic in October 2005, UNESCO's
General Conference approved the proclamation of 27 October as the annual
World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage
can be a means of building global awareness of the various issues at stake
in preserving the audiovisual heritage. In accordance with normal practice,
a feasibility study has been commenced to test the objectives,
practicalities, costs and expected results of such an annual commemoration.
The date is significant. On 27 October 1980, the General Conference adopted
the "Recommendation for the safeguarding and preservation of moving images",
the first international instrument to declare the cultural and historical
importance of film and television recordings, and calling for decisive steps
to ensure their preservation.
In today's digital age, that call is going out to an even wider spectrum.
More recent initiatives, such as the "World Appeal for the Preservation of
Broadcast Heritage" (initiated by the International Federation of Television
Archives) - which has so far garnered over 10,000 signatures - will also be
embraced in the feasibility study.
Public consultation is a crucial part of the feasibility study, and it is
open to everyone. UNESCO has therefore established an online platform with
background documents, a public forum and a questionnaire. You can access
full details via this link:
The questionnaire can be completed online or can be downloaded and returned
