Abstract

Sharing Moving Image Metadata and Streaming Video on Demand Content – The Project AVA as a Use Case for Cross Domain Cooperation between Film Festivals and Public Libraries

The paper explores new models of sharing moving image content and metadata by cross domain cooperation between film festivals and public libraries to give access to streaming video on demand services in libraries. Libraries and film festivals share in common that they collect and catalog moving image metadata and give access to moving images. The different communities have been connected for the first time on an international scale in the project AVA Audiovisual Access. In AVA libraries and festivals of seven cities in six European countries cooperate with the company Reelport which provides the streaming video on demand infrastructure. The public private partnership is co-funded by the European Union in the Creative Europe MEDIA program in 2016-2017. The paper focuses on the use case of the cooperation between the International Short Film Festival Interfilm Berlin and the Berlin Central and Regional Library (Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin). By taking the example of the AVA project as a starting point the paper aims at discussing future perspectives for international and cross domain cooperation between moving image content providers and libraries to give access to streaming video on demand services. Special attention is given to questions of metadata standards applied and requirements for data exchange cross domain. It also discusses questions of technical infrastructure and equipment needed as well as information gathered about user requirements and user expectations concerning the streaming video on demand service.
