The Northeast India AV Archive
An Exposure Trip
An Exposure trip was taken by Nathaniel Majaw, Project Director, The Northeast India AV Archive and Dondor Lyngdoh, faculty of the Department of Mass Media, St Anthony's College Shillong to the National Film Archive, Pune and Films Division India, Mumbai from the 5th to the 7th of August 2019. The visit to the National Film Archive was a pursuit to learn more about the technical procedures involved in the archiving of films, particularly the archiving and storage of celluloid films. A part of film archiving also involves the storage of production notes, posters, records and documents of the film. The visit to the Archival Research Centre department at Films Division India was akin to a classroom experience where much was learned about the accessing of content that The Northeast India AV Archive owns, and making the online interface more user-oriented.
