Cinema Studies’ Dan Streible and Four Others from NYU Honored by the 2011 Cinema Ritrovato Festival

September 16, 2011

Dan Streible, associate professor in the Department of Cinema Studies at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and three 2010 graduates of the Moving Image Archiving Preservation (MIAP) program—Walter Forsberg, Stefan Elnabli, and Jonah Volk—along with Alice Moscoso, media preservation specialist in NYU Libraries, Barbara Goldsmith, Preservation and Conservation Department, have been honored by the 2011 Cinema Ritrovato Festival of Bologna. The NYU group was singled out with an award for Most Original Contribution to Film History for their DVD Orphans 7—A Film Symposium (New York University’s Orphan Film Symposium, www.nyu.edu/orphanfilm).

The Cinema Ritrovato Festival of Bologna is known for its outstanding programming of vintage titles in a historic Italian city.  The NYU submission was recognized for bringing to the attention of DVD watchers a “rich and fascinating area of film history: so-called ‘ephemeral’ films, including amateur films, activist filmmaking, and industrial films with magnificent, in-depth commentary.”  The DVD was produced as part of Streible’s Cinema Studies course, Curating Moving Images, and is a limited-edition, nonprofit, not-for-sale, educational publication.  The 11 works on the DVD ranged in date from 1926 to 2004.

Streible’s MIAP group is currently in the final stages of producing a second DVD for the Orphan Film Project. It will be be a 2-DVD set, with NYU Libraries partnering on the project.
