Hispasat and RTVE have joined forces on the occasion of the Hispasat 4K International Short Film Festival Awards to collaborate with the Spanish Film Archive in the 4K digitising of a copy of the 1915 classic “Clarita y Peladilla en el fútbol” (Clarita y Peladilla at the match) directed by Benito Perojo, one of the great pioneers of our film industry. State-of-theart technological advances, including the 4K scanner recently acquired by Spanish National TV and Radio Corporation (RTVE), have been used in the digitising process. October 19 next will see the first showing of the result at the award ceremony of what is the Festival's third edition. The event is scheduled to begin at 7.00 pm in the Cine Estudio at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid. This initiative, the fruit of an agreement signed by the three entities, has been set up to contribute to the updating and preservation of Spanish film heritage and to improve the visual quality of the material kept at the Spanish Film Archive. Moreover, the new copy of this Spanish film gem is to be accompanied by a soundtrack expressly composed for the film by the composer Jorge Taramasco, who has transferred his copyright to the Spanish Film Archive. The agreement signed includes the handing over to the National Film Archive of a copy of the winning shorts at the Hispasat 4K International Festival Awards for them to be kept there and to form part of its collection. The signatories to the agreement were further aided in their initiative by the collaboration of the software firm SGO to produce all the Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs), which are the files to be handed over for safekeeping to the Film Archive. Entry to the award ceremony and film showings is free.
