*Screening the Future 2012: Play, Pause and Press Forward*
*May 21-23, 2012, Los Angeles*

Organized by the PrestoCentre Foundation in collaboration with the
University of Southern California Shoah Foundation Institute and Digital

*The Conference*
The Screening the Future conference serves the global community of
stakeholders who keep audiovisual content alive. This annual international
conference brings together more than 250 leading archivists, production
companies, filmmakers, TV producers, CTOs, scientists, vendors,
strategists, funders and policy makers, developing solutions to the most
urgent questions facing audiovisual repositories. With *Play, Pause and
Press Forward *as the theme of this year's conference, we explore: the
current status of audiovisual archives; the main challenges that archives
and producers face in terms of IT, institutional position, and changes in
use and market; and their future readiness.

*Conference Themes:*

   - *For the record:* Should we talk about data or media?
   - *Meeting the demand:* How can we match users’ expectations with
   institutional capabilities?
   - *“I am big, it’s the pictures that got small!”: *What we can learn
   from each other

*Master Classes:*

   of archival systems in a variety of institutions.
