In honor of the Academy Awards, here is a fantastic metadata standard for cinematic works – EN 15907. Available in English, French and German this standard employs some of the usual suspects for elements like Identifier, Title and Year of Reference, but also includes film specific elements like Award. Dare to dream!
This standard is simple, elegant and extensible. The filmstandards.org web page also features interesting related documentation and resources compiled by the film archives community and from people working in related cultural heritage institutions, organizations, and initiatives.
