The Silesian Digitarium. Digitalization and providing access to the resources of Silesian cultural institutions
The Silesian Digitarium is a project ran in cooperation between four cultural institutions of the Silesian Voivodeship: the Silesian Library (project leader), the Regional Institute of Culture, Silesia Film Institute and the Silesian Opera in Bytom. The goal of this venture is digitalization of the cultural resources of Silesia and providing access to them through a complex system of digitization, archiving and presenting collections. As a result, 153 TB of data will be gathered, while users on the internet will be granted access to more than 93 000 objects: written documents, films, historic exhibits, opera props and costumes.

This year marks the 100th birthday of Ingmar Bergman. Every month throughout the year, the Silesian Film Archive will invite viewers to participate in events related to the director’s life and work. The programme will include i.a. a retrospective of films by Bergman which set the direction of cinema, screenings of documentaries, exhibitions, discussions, meetings with researchers and enthusiasts of the director’s body of work. We start towards the end of January!
Like from a comic book, drawn with a thick line, in neon colours like that of school highlighters and shamelessly youthful, as befits a rebel. Such is the cinema of Gregg Araki, who from the end of the eighties has been telling us with the same verve about growing up and his rebellious heroes, whom he truly adores. Considered one of the most important creators of the New Queer Cinema, Araki has shown that about the story of a rebellion, alienation and identity can be told using the already known yet transformed language like the slang of the youth.
