SEAPAVAA honors conribution by leading archivists

The South East Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA) appoints its founding Fellows: SEAPAVAA founder Ray Edmondson, International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) current President Hisashi Okajima, former Chairman of Association of Moving Image Archivists Jim Lindner and Sinematek Indonesia founder Misbach Yusabiran. In addition, Mr Edmondson will also be conferred the SEAPAVAA Lifetime Achievement Award, a recognition that was first given to Yusabiran in 1997.

The SEAPAVAA Fellowship encapsulates and pursues the association’s mission of honouring exceptional service and achievements in the field of audiovisual archiving in the region. The Program recognizes outstanding individuals for their significant contributions to the field in varying means and ways as it also distinguishes them as key players and leaders in the community. With this program SEAPAVAA aims to advocate the advancement of the professional development and recognition of audiovisual archivists who safeguard the rich audiovisual heritage of the region.

When asked about his hopes for the organisation he founded, Mr Edmondson said, “I’m thrilled and honoured to accept this award. SEAPAVAA is now a globally recognised professional association, but it is also something more: I hope, as it grows, it will never lose its special character as a community, in the fullest, mutually supportive sense of that word.”

The conferment ceremonies will be held on August 3, 2010 during the 14th SEAPAVAA Conference and General Assembly to be held at the Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre in Bangkok, Thailand. Fellows will be delivering their Master Lectures during the conference with the theme, "Community Building for Collaborative Actions".
