CIPPM research at the EYE International Conference 2018

On Sunday 27 May, CIPPM researcher Claudy Op den Kamp, chaired a panel presentation in Amsterdam at the EYE International Conference—Activating the Archive, which featured Professor Peter Jaszi, CREATe researcher Bartolomeo Meletti, and Bournemouth University lecturer and film producer Wendy Bevan-Mogg. The panel, entitled ‘Resisting Copyright and Its Archival Implications’ highlighted several aspects of recent changes in UK copyright law (in particular fair dealing by use of a quotation exception) and the implications for found footage filmmaking—making films with extant material. The panel marked the launch of Claudy’s monograph The Greatest Films Never Seen. The Film Archive and the Copyright Smokescreen (Amsterdam University Press). Peter Jaszi received the first copy of the book, albeit a blank dummy. The real thing will be available in mid-August.
