FootageFest 2018

22-23 September 2018

North Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA


22nd - 23rd September 2018

North Hollywood, USA

FOCAL International and AMCUP present FootageFest - a unique series of events and sessions that bring together buyers and sellers from both sides of the transatlantic pond.

The two day festival will give delegates real insights into working with footage in both the UK and USA - diplomatically and effectively breaking down the unknowns, the stereotypes, the differences, as well as embracing the intercontinental similarities. This is footage without borders for the twenty-first century for the benefit of AMCUP and FOCAL members and the wider community of footage lovers.

The weekend will include topical seminars with leading US and UK industry figures, covering essential issues such as the process and pitfalls of licensing to and from US and UK companies; the fine art of research for historical, entertainment and news projects across the continents; as well as new and innovative ways to safeguard and trace illicit reuse of content.

Delegates can engage with their transatlantic counterparts throughout the festival and workshops as well as mingle and meet colleagues and peers at the continental breakfast, Footage & Photo Trivia Contest, after dinner party and MUCH MORE. Buyers and sellers can also participate in the focused yet fun FootageFest Face-off - a speed-networking forum - and enjoy screenings from critically acclaimed documentaries and conversations with the people who helped make them.

This is a free event for any AMCUP or FOCAL member and tickets will be available to buy for non-members. Ticket sales will be open shortly along with the full published weekend schedule.
