FootageFest 2018

22-23 September 2018

North Hollywood & Santa Monica - USA


22nd - 23rd September 2018

North Hollywood & Santa Monica, USA

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

The two day festival gave 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 was 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 included topical seminars with leading US, UK and international industry figures, covering essential issues such as the process and pitfalls of licensing to and from US, UK, Europe and Middle East 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 engaged with their transatlantic counterparts throughout the festival with a series of discussion panels on Saturday as well as mingled and met colleagues and peers at the continental breakfast, lunch and evening networkworking drinks . Buyers and sellers also enjoy the screening from critically acclaimed documentary 'My Generation' with a Q&A afterwards with Archive Producer James Hunt on Sunday followed by a networking lunch.
