Old versus New

What are the implications for films when artists and filmmakers incorporate archive footage into their work, creating new from old?

What are the implications for commercial films when artists and filmmakers incorporate archive footage into their work, essentially creating something new from something old? Despite the fact that archive footage organisations are increasingly opening up their collections to artist residency programmes, who actually owns this footage and what are the implications of presenting work that features archive material, which is then used in a public setting?

This Own-It event in association with Film London and Whitechapel will look at the steps it takes to access available archive material and the resulting privacy and licensing issues that spring from this. Artists Vikki Bennett and Paul Bush, legal expert Sean Egan and archival specialists will explore the issues, including fair use, moral rights and creative commons.

Issues covered:
- BBC’s creative archive licence
- Sampling and downloading from digital archives
- Licence agreements
- Clearances and infringements
- Creative Commons
