The identification and restoration of photographic and cinematographic films are often needed as they can undergo severe deterioration, aging, and color fading. Moreover, films also have to keep up with quick technological changes. In this context, knowing the material that composes the film is fundamental to restore the chromatic characteristics to their origins and to perform a correct retrieval faithful to the analog support. Nevertheless, the lack of technical information and the absence of opensource archives of the production companies underlines the actual and concrete need for a database of physical, chemical, and sensitometric data of films and photos. These are the motivations that lead to the creation of FiRe, a unique database of cinematographic and photographic materials that can support the work of conservators, restorers, and researchers. With this project, we also aim at promoting cooperation between institutions and professionals.

Abstract

The identification and restoration of photographic and cinematographic films are often needed as they can undergo severe deterioration, aging, and color fading. Moreover, films also have to keep up with quick technological changes. In this context, knowing the material that composes the film is fundamental to restore the chromatic characteristics to their origins and to perform a correct retrieval faithful to the analog support. Nevertheless, the lack of technical information and the absence of opensource archives of the production companies underlines the actual and concrete need for a database of physical, chemical, and sensitometric data of films and photos. These are the motivations that lead to the creation of FiRe, a unique database of cinematographic and photographic materials that can support the work of conservators, restorers, and researchers. With this project, we also aim at promoting cooperation between institutions and professionals.
