Recycled Film Symposium

We're speaking at this conference tomorrow and Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle as part of AV Festival, where we will also be screening, 'A short film about War'.  Lots of great speakers and an interesting theme for the day, so should be a good day all round!

This national symposium brings together leading film organisations, filmmakers, artists and archivists to discuss online access to film archives and the creative use of this material in the digital age. Film is a crucial part of our heritage, however, online access to archives is limited especially when compared to other online collections like youtube. This symposium will open up the debate and look at different ways of collecting, archiving and accessing our shared film history.

We're also really excited that Animate Projects have commissioned Lisa LeFeuvre to write a contextual essay about, 'A Short Film about War', which is available on their website to read and download as a diffusion book alongside a streaming version of the work.
