CFA have informed
us that the first batch of invitation letters have finally been sent
to the first 65 delegates who registered for the Congress. Letters to
the other delegates will be sent shortly. Copies of these letters were
also sent to the Embassy or Consulate where delegates are supposed to
apply for a visa. When you obtain an appointment for your visa, please
don’t forget to take your copy of the invitation letter with you.
IF you have not received your visa application form from Feng Bo you
should contact him immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any other question contact the Secretariat at email@example.com
As of today, 76
delegates have officially registered for the Beijing Congress. We are
expecting many more to join them over the next few weeks. But don’t
leave it too late!
CFA has announced
that there will be a choice of two excursions for delegates on Thursday
26 April. You will have the opportunity either to combine visits of
the Forbidden City and the Great Wall, or to visit the China National
Film Museum, the Beijing Film Vault (CFA’s film vault in Beijing)
and the State Production Base of China Film Group. Our Congress hosts
have also generously decided to invite all delegates who are interested
to a Peking Opera performance on 24 April in the evening. Further details
to follow soon.
Once you have
sent your registration form to Feng Bo, you should receive another form
from him asking for your passport details. Please fill this in and email
/ fax it back immediately so that China Film Archive can prepare your
invitation letter. You will receive it within 7 working days.
On the occasion
of the 68th FIAF Congress in Beijing, the Norwegian Film Institute and
the National Library of Norway are pleased to offer the delegates a
copy of the restored Norwegian 1926 silent Brudeferden i Hardanger /
The Bridal Party in Hardanger, with subtitles in Chinese and English.
The venue for
the Congress’ closing party on Saturday 28 April will be the Beijing
Hotel, off Tian’Amnen Square.
House (one of the four hotels on the list) is now full, so please do
not choose this one when you register and fill in your hotel booking
We encourage you to register for the Congress and book your trip as
quickly as possible, as flight tickets are getting more expensive, and
the visa procedure can be lengthy (don’t forget that you need
an official letter from CFA to obtain your visa, but that letter can’t
be sent to you until you have returned your filled-in forms).
We also remind you that the right to vote in the Beijing General Assembly
is indeed restricted to archives which have sent their annual report
to the Secretariat by 28 February, and paid their annual affiliate fee
for 2011 (Rule 33 of the Statues and Rules).
