The FIAT/IFTA World Conference 2015 in Vienna was a great success. From October 7th until October 10th, participants had a unique occasion to discuss and learn about the many challenges and innovations faced by archives in their quest towards the future. Different aspects of audiovisual collection’s life, use and potential value where presented and discussed, thus unveiling and discovering new ways of advancing and integrating their action in our digital society. So, from every point of view, the Vienna Conference was indeed “a bridge towards the future”.
