MUVI 04: museums - video - film


time: 5.12.2012. - 6.12.2012.
place: Zagreb, Croatia
organiser: MDC & MSU
On 5-6 December the fourth edition of MUVI: museums-video-film will take place in Zagreb, Croatia. MUVI is a research project the objective of which is, through the active organisation of events, a screening programme, lectures, encounters of museum professionals with film and video authors and the issue of publications, to contribute to the production of a creative atmosphere in the recognition and use of the media of film and video in museums. 

The very number of 150 films that we have screened during the previous three events has convinced us that in the last few years museums have been endeavouring to make use of the opportunities of the media for the recording and documentation of their diverse activities.
 
The first biennial MUVI 01: museums-video-film was held in 2006 at Museum Documentation Centre (Zagreb, Croatia) the aim of it being to explore and show all the diversity of museum film and video productions in Croatian museums and galleries and to encourage the preservation and protection of this segment of the heritage.
 
The concept of the project was defined at the very outset. It was predicted that MUVI would be held over few days every other year in the first week in December, with the proviso that the first two days were intended for a screening programme (video and films of local and foreign production), while day three, depending on the programme, would be reserved for lectures, workshops or roundtables.
 
The focus of MUVI 04 would be on successful promotion of a museum community through the film and video. In parallel, the project will continue to cover research into museum and documentation collections, video collections and film collections of Croatian and worlds’ museums and to work as a platform for the gathering of and development of personal contacts among professionals who deal with this area of activity.
