The Commission, of which CRITS and Teche are part, is dedicated to fostering collaboration between research and archive communities and mediating the growth of scholarly expertise that adds value to audiovisual archives by means of innovative research.

The Media Studies Grant is a program that offers support for research carried out at FIAT/IFTA member archives or is of direct relevance to one or more of our member archives.
For the 2022 edition of the grant are required projects that adds value to and helps to understand the role of audiovisual archives in a shifting, converging media environment.
Three core areas of research will be prioritized this year:
- Transnational approaches to the study of audiovisual archive
- Digital tools and experimental methods in media studies research
- Interactive and innovative research uses of digital archives
The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday, April 4.
