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 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 with a series of discussion panels on Saturday as well as mingle and meet colleagues and peers at the continental breakfast, networkworking drinks and MUCH MORE. Buyers and sellers can also enjoy screenings from critically acclaimed documentary and conversations with the people who helped make them on Sunday followed by a networking lunch.

This is a free event for any AMCUP or FOCAL member and tickets will be available to buy for non-members. Tickets are available until 14th September and are available on Eventbrite HERE.
