The World Day for Audiovisual Heritage – 27 October – is a key initiative for both UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) to honor audiovisual preservation professionals and institutions that safeguard our heritage for future generations. Around the world audiovisual archives join together annually on this day to celebrate their work with events that highlight the vulnerability of these valuable materials and celebrate the often, unheralded work of the institutions that provide protection and preservation, ensuring their availability in the future.
The Albanian National Film Archive celebrates WDAH 2023 with the premiere screening of the latest restoration project “Mësonjëtorja” (The School), a 1979 movie by Muharrem Fejzo.
27 October also marks the 80th birthday of Albanian actress Roza Anagnosti, who plays Dafina, the teacher at “The School”. Many celebrations this year in Tirana, as a tribute to our audiovisual heritage!
