György Ráduly: Film archives and preservation

One of the basic tasks of the Hungarian National Filmarchive is to preserve the Hungarian film heritage on the long term. Celluloid films have survived through 120 years but they definitely won’t last for another 120 years, and we’re running out of time as these materials are dissolving, and we can only slow the process down. Digital data mediums are yet to prove their 120 years but nowadays there is no better alternative for digitization to save and maintain the film heritage.
