WORLD CONFERENCE 2017

The Fédération Internationale des Archives de Télévision - International Federation of Television Archives (FIAT/IFTA) is a worldwide association of institutions, commercial companies and associates with a special interest in audiovisual archiving in general and media archives in particular. Our members come from the public and commercial broadcasting sector, national audiovisual archives along with industry, universities and associated archives and individuals. The association aims to connect members, to spread knowledge in the field of audiovisual archiving to represent their interests at international level.


FIAT/IFTA was founded in 1976, and its first conference was held in 1977 in Paris. Since then a World Conference has been held annually. In 2016 it was held in Warsaw and the 2017 40th Anniversary event will take place in México City where it will be hosted by the Fonoteca Nacional together with TV Unam and the SPR. The Conference features keynotes speakers, panels, discussions, workshops, masterclasses, case study presentations, social events and networking opportunities and, the FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards.


MEXICO CITY

Mexico City is the capital of Mexico. Its metropolitan area is one of the world's largest and the largest city by population in North America, with an estimated 26 million people living in the region. It is shaped roughly like an oval of about 60 by 40km, built on the dry bed of Lake Texcoco, and surrounded on three sides by tall mountains and volcanoes such as the Ajusco, the Popocatepetl and the Ixtaccihuatl. Mexico City proper (with a population of 8.8 million as of 2010) is in the Federal District (Spanish: Distrito Federal or D.F.), a federally-administered area which acts as the capital of Mexico.

Mexico City's is a wonderful cultural and historic site located 2,200 m above mean sea level which is equivalent to more than 7,200 ft.


CLIMATE

Mexico City weather is divided into two seasons, dry from November to April, and rainy from May to October. Spring months are warm, while the summer months can vary from light to heavy rains especially in the late afternoon. In October temperatures range from 9° to 22°, with an average temperature of 16°.


MOVING AROUND IN MEXICO

Travel in Mexico City is normally safe. Areas around the historic center are generally well-lit and patrolled in the early evening. Much of your travel within the city will be done via public transportation or walking. Mexico City is an immensely crowded place, and like in any major metropolitan area, you are advised to be aware of your surroundings. Ask locals or hotel staff about places to avoid. If a neighborhood is considered unsafe and dangerous, just don't go there. As simple as that. Avoid walking alone (especially if you are female traveler) at night and call a taxi (never hail one out on the street) to take you safely back to your hotel or place of residence.

MEXICO CITY FOUNDATION

Spanish conquistadors founded Mexico City in 1521 atop the razed island-capital of Tenochtitlán, the cultural and political centre of the Aztec (Mexica) empire. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited urban settlements in the Western Hemisphere, and it is ranked as one of the world’s most populous metropolitan areas.



One of the few major cities not located along the banks of a river, it lies in an inland basin called the Valley of Mexico, or Mesa Central. The valley is an extension of the southern Mexican Plateau and is also known as Anáhuac (Nahuatl: “Close to the Water”) because the area once contained several large lakes.



The name México is derived from Nahuatl, the language of its precolonial inhabitants. City’s leading position with regard to other urban centres of the developing world can be attributed to its origins in a rich and diverse environment, its long history as a densely populated area, and the central role that its rulers have defined for it throughout the ages.

VENUES

Fonoteca Nacional de México

The sound memory of a culture gives an account of its becoming; in it are credited their beliefs, speech modes, rhythms and sound environments that represent and shape their identity. Registering, cataloging and disseminating this material is a fundamental task to understand and value its vitality.

One of the commitments of the Mexican State is the preservation and safeguard of the cultural heritage of the country. Sound heritage is a fundamental part of this heritage and a primordial element of national identity and memory. In response to this commitment, the Fonoteca Nacional was created to be responsible for researching, recording, preserving and disseminating Mexico’s sound heritage, derived both from live experiences and from the phonographic and radiophonic tradition.

Recognized throughout Latin America, today it can be affirmed that the implementation of the Fonoteca Nacional signifies an unprecedented fact in the culture of Mexico, not only because its primary purpose is to protect one of the most fragile and neglected patrimonies throughout the twentieth century, but because it has implemented many successful ways to spread that Mexican treasure.

Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco

The Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco of the UNAM is a multidisciplinary complex dedicated to research, study, analysis and dissemination of topics related to art, history and resistance processes.

It promotes the cultural formation of the immediate community, university students and the general public, conceived as agents of participatory interaction with the UNAM. In this way, it preserves and activates its artistic and documentary collections, as well as the collections associated with its museum spaces.

We seek to be a reference of the multidisciplinary, academic and artistic work closely linked with the university work, that allows to attract and serve the public in general and the immediate community, generating a significant impact in their daily life.

Museo Interactivo de Economía

The Interactive Museum of Economics is the first museum in the world dedicated exclusively to economics. The museum was opened in 2006 with the sponsorship of the Bank of Mexico, the Nacional Financiera and other government organizations.

The museum is open to the public but its focus is on students, teachers and economic professionals providing hands-on exhibits meant to be fun and engaging.

It is located in the restored building that belonged to the old Convent of the Bethlehemites on Tacuba Street. The building was constructed as a hospital in the 18th century by the Bethlehemites, which was the only religious order founded in the Americas. This religious order was later disbanded by the Spanish Crown for supporting insurgents during the Mexican War of Independence. The building covers half of a city block on Tacuba Street between Bolivar and Filomeno Mata. The Bank of Mexico acquired the building in 1990. The convent was restored in cooperation with the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH).

The restoration took fifteen years to complete and was concluded in 2004. In some areas, colonial era tiles were covered in fifteen layers of paint.
