About the Project

The Photographic and Graphic Art Collection from Albania's Motion Picture Legacy
Project Grant

The Albanian National Film Archive (AQSHF) holds in its care a vast collection of photo negatives that chronicle the growth and the technological development of the Albanian film industry from 1946 to the 2000's. AQSHF has selected 18,041 items from their photographic and graphic art collections for digitization to safeguard their legacy into the future, and open them up to scholars, researchers and the public. The curated selection includes costume and set design sketches, animation slides and production stills, allowing one to trace the genuine journey of Albanian visual artists, still unknown but deserving of preservation and study.
