Our first summer at silent green has begun! 57,050.20 kilos of analogue film are now stored at our new film archive facilities. The bright, sun-filled screening rooms have been fitted with blinds to make it possible for 16 and 35 mm film prints to be watched at the editing tables – the garden of the MOOS restaurant is just a stone’s throw away. Why do we place such importance on housing analogue material and making it accessible to the public? Aren’t nearly all films available online anyway? This is far from true. Visit our archive tour on 24.8. at 6pm at the silent green.
