MIMEHIST uses and develops CLARIAH Media Suite components’ annotation functionalities to analyse EYE Filmmuseum’s collection of cinema owner and distributor Jean Desmet. In doing so, the pilot aims at creating a mixed media analysis approach to the collection’s paper and film archives, to study how discussions of the film’s material, stylistic and content features among Dutch cinema theatre owners related to their exhibition and reception context. Beyond this specific case, the pilot’s approach will be of wider relevance for research on AV collections and online social media in other fields.
Sound & Vision supervises the Media Suite research and gathers new user requirements for the Media Suite.
This project is a CLARIAH Research Pilot financed by NWO.
