Forget about YouTube and bittorrent. NINATEKA is a collection of over five thousand films, theater performances, concerts, radio programs and news programs available legally and for free wherever there’s an internet connection.
The EUscreenXL project consists of over thirty institutions collaborating on the EUscreen portal, a collection of tens of thousands of pieces of audiovisual content and one million metadata entries. It provides free and legal access to a digital library of archival television programs, photographs and articles.
The biggest collection of works by Poland’s three masters: Witold Lutosławski, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, and Krzysztof Penderecki. It comprises both widely known pieces and works that are nearly forgotten: grand performances and pieces of stage music, as well as scores written for movies, plays, and radio, even some popular tunes — totalling over 320 recordings and 380 descriptions.
The recording is part of the multimedia essay created by 20 household names in Polish culture and presented live on February 24th, 2017 during the NInA Finale. It was an event during which we looked back at the last decade in audiovisual culture, as well as the nearly 12-year-long history of the Institute (just days before the merger with the National Film Archive).
