The Fwd: Re: Archive Seminar is the central event of a month-long gathering organised around the 10th anniversary of Pad.ma the footage archive, and the 5th anniversary of Indiancine.ma the film archive.https://Pad.ma/https://Indiancine.ma/Pan.do/ra and sister projects https://Bak.ma/ and https://858.ma/ have further invited a group of colleagues, collaborators and those taking similar journeys to an event that traces the genealogies and branches of our collective endeavours, and looks to the future for how the archive looks like as a scene of production and scholarship


Today, we are many: filmmakers, cinephiles, scholars, programmers, archivist- activists and post-big-data artists and thinkers. How can the archival technologies and institutions that we have been developing accommodate for unforeseen types of creation and production, and what conditions need to be established, inside, around and in between archives, to keep them radically open towards the many futures that they already point towards?


The seminar is composed of an in-depth conversation format, a screening and performance program of assemblages drawn from the first week's workshop,intertwined with future-looking scholarship and theory.
