Open City Documentary Festival is offering a new course for artists and filmmakers who are interested in using archival material in their work, and scholars who are interested in probing further into the archival turn in non-fiction filmmaking.
Led by artist-filmmaker Onyeka Igwe, this course is for artists and filmmakers interested in using archival material in their work, and for scholars interested in probing further into the archival turn in non-fiction filmmaking.
There has been a critical mass of moving image practices utilising and questioning archival material. However, many makers have questions relating to necessary ethical considerations and lack practical information on how to use archives successfully in their work.
Over five weeks we will cover theoretical approaches to archival research, ethical discussions on image reproduction, and the practical application and legal implications of using archival material in non fiction filmmaking.
The workshop will be conducted remotely.
