This article looks at the changing film culture in the digital age. Remixing refers to the re-editing of footages that may be easily accessed through the Internet. However, this practice is not new since there is a history of footage films that have been discovered. From the 1970s onwards, film archives have become more visible, but in the past, they have been nonexistent and had been more concerned with preservation rather than with making the collections accessible. In November 2007, the "Future Histories of the Moving Image" conference was held at the University of Sunderland in England.
