9th ORPHAN FILM SYMPOSIUM: THE FUTURE OF OBSOLESCENCE (ENG)

By Julian Ross

Now in its 9th edition since 1999, the Orphan Film Symposium has been a biannual gathering of archivists, academics and artists under the auspices of NYU’s Dan Streible for the purposes to share and discuss projects related to “orphan films”. Rather than the legal definition of “orphan films” as films without a copyright holder, the symposium opts for an inclusive categorisation that encompasses a range of works that are neglected to varying degrees.
