Summary/Abstract: Transmedia communication, developed in the digital environment, generates tools and conditions for the creation of new narratives. This text traces the adapted role of the film archive institution, which to maintain relevance in the digital world itself produces narratives. The opportunities for the creation and presentation of new narratives could be either individual, as described here via the existence of an established film festival dedicated to archival films, such as Il Cinema Ritrovato, created by a single film archive, Cineteca di Bologna, which welcomes visitors from around the world, or collective, displayed by the platform A Season of Classic Films, initiated by the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE), where the emphasis lays on the online free screenings of digitally restored archival film documents offered by the 22 film archives from 21 European countries that partake in the project and are members of ACE.The audience’s experience also undergoes expansions of its viewing habits as a result of the evolving communicative situation, which throughout various cultural practices offers additional channels to capture and follow narratives. The result of such a narrative is a screen work composed of pre-existing archival documents that are assembled into a new narrative framework. The text also traces how this newly created framework defines both the work and the importance it has in film preservation.
