    The congress will take place mostly at the Uránia National Film Theatre and it will include the general assembly on 28 April 2022, as well as the Symposium: The Visible Archive: Archiving, preserving, digitizing, and sharing 'non-feature' film collections (25-26 April), panels, presentations, the Second Century Forum, regional group meetings, and film screenings.

    “Recently, the work of film archives around the world has faced enormous challenges. However, through the resilience and knowledge of the community of film archives, solutions have been found to these challenges, indeed, we have even developed and learned. The congress being held in 2022 will be remarkable in several aspects. Once again, we will be able to meet and share experiences with each other, and all this in the culturally inspiring environment of Budapest that has such deep filmmaking roots”, said György Ráduly, Director of the National Film Institute – Film Archive.
