World War I Film Footage in Cyberspace

Films about World War 1 that have never been seen outside a cinema or on television are to be made available on the internet for the first time. The European Film Gateway 1914 (EFG1914) plans to digitize up to 650 hours of footage and make it freely accessible via europeana.eu, Europe’s digital library, museum and archive. It will also appear on the film portal www.europeanfilmgateway.eu. The 2-year project was launched during a meeting of more than 40 representatives from 25 partner institutions at the German Film Museum in Frankfurt am Main.

The footage, which includes newsreels, documentary films, and footage as well as fiction films from and about World War I, is being digitized by archives across Europe, including the Imperial War Museum in London—which has one of the largest institutional World War I related collections—along with partners in France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Spain, and the Netherlands.

Project organizers are sharing hundreds of hours of film material and expertise from a number of individual European archives in order to highlight the benefits of film digitization and digital preservation of historical films across the sector.
