In a spirit of peaceful co-operation and friendship between peoples, UNICA promotes international understanding and cooperation, in particular in the field of art, culture, education and science, in accordance with the principles of UNESCO.
WHAT IS UNICA
UNICA is an independent international organisation. She is a member of the CICT - International Council for Film, Television and Audiovisual Communication at UNESCO, which is an authoritative body. The supreme body of UNICA is the General Assembly where all member organisations have the right to participate and to vote. Executive power is held by a Committee composed of eleven members and selected for a three-year term by the General Assembly.
We'd like to remind you that launching the videos will send some data to YouTube, Vimeo or other video servers.
The General Assembly (GA) is held once a year in the course of the UNICA Congress. The GA is composed of the delegates, their deputies, the members of the Committee and the members of the existing special commissions. The GA is open to the public, except by a contrary decision of the GA.
For many years member National Organisations have received DVDs of UNICA programmes, including films, which are not available online. That means, that most films can be borrowed from these Organisations.
Older films are stored in the Lichtspiel Archive in Bern. These films may be borrowed by National Organisations. Request them via Filmlibrary.
If acetate films are requested, a flat fee of CHF 25.- has to be paid for the digitalized copy. If the original film is requested the postal charges have to be met.
This exhibition introduces you to the history of do-it-yourself films and shows you many contemporary documents such as amateur films, movie cameras, projectors and other devices. The formats range from 8, Super8, 9.5 up to 16 mm.
