Our 20th International Archaeological Film Festival of Rovereto has just finished. After seeing the growing interest of the public and the world of archaeology through scientific communication, images and film, we have come up with a new way of spreading information about the ancient world in collaboration with Archeologia Viva of Florence: a web television channel entirely devoted to archaeology.
In the wake of www.sperimentarea.tv a web channel http://www.sperimentarea.tv/ managed by the Town Museum of Rovereto, we invite you to have a look at www.archeologiaviva.tv http://www.archeologiaviva.tv/ a web channel wholly dedicated to archaeology. The editorial staff is managed by Archeolgia Viva whereas the institutional, technical and administrative aspects are managed by Gruppo Giunti Editore and the Town Museum of Rovereto (The Town Council of Rovereto).
Archeologia Viva TV features mainly news and the latest developments of international archaeological research. It also features all of the conversations-interviews in archaeological research which have been filmed and recorded in past festivals in Rovereto, and of course films about the millenary history of man and the ancient world.
As for films the aim is strictly linked to promoting new work and revisiting the huge film heritage that has disappeared and is no longer in use because commercial interest decreases over time and also the scientific content is unfairly overshadowed. We also want to spread knowledge by promoting films produced by scientific Bodies and Institutions.
It is an exacting challenge and service. We do not have economic or commercial aims but we can indirectly create opportunities for the film productions that need promotion and visibility.
The video Web-television format is to be flash video type (flv) 640*360 bitrate 380 kb/s of good definition which does not allow downloading contents in good quality.
The films will be changed every 2 weeks or every month. The new web channel (www.aecheologiaviva http://www.aecheologiaviva.tv) was inaugurated on 20 October and please feel free to watch it. We also really hope you will take part with your films.
If you have already taken part in films in the International Archaeological Film Festival of Rovereto or if you already have any films in the Film On-line section of the Museo Civico of Rovereto, (then) our archives already have a copy of your work. In this case with specific authorization we can use the copy of our archives. If there is another film, we will need a digital copy of it (DVD) with your authorization.
We hope you will join in and take part in this project. If you would like any further information or if you would like to send us a reply, we kindly ask you to send an email to the Festival organization staff below, or to Piero Pruneti, Director of the Archeologia Viva review: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
All our very best
