Workshop Exploring Use of Archival Material

A workshop exploring the use of archival material: from at once a creative, ethical, and legal standpoint was held during the Doc Circuit on November 15th 2016 in Montreal. Guest speakers talked about their work and, with the moderator, delivered both practical advice and creative inspiration to filmmakers and producers who are interested in delving into the rich history found in archives and databases everywhere. Nancy Marcotte from the Visual Researchers Society of Canada was the moderator. Claudie Lévesque and Caroline Martel, directors both working with archival materials, and Lea Nakonechny from the NFB were the speakers.
