RecDoc/ docsBarcelona to host FOCAL Training Session for Footage Archive Researchers

1 October 2004

This year we are premiering RecDoc, a day devoted to professional training in the field of documentary and audiovisual archive research. Last year in DOCSBARCELONA, the enormous interest generated by the session “Archives, all you need to know” has encouraged us to set aside a day devoted to the work of a professional group which enables directors and producers to discover that archives can be a real treasure trove which will help to make their documentaries a reality.

Recdoc will be held on Saturday 6th November, 2004 at the Cinema Club Catalunya of Terrassa and will coincide with the final day of DOCSBARCELONA.

You can sign up now to take part and the price of this event is 125 Euros. This fee includes the workshop, the coffee breaks and lunch.

The Programme will be divided into two parts. In the morning, FOCAL International will explain the steps which have to be taken to cover the whole process of archive research: from when the producer hands the researcher the “wish list” of archive material up to the time when the film has been fully edited. In the afternoon, there will be a session focused on the way on-line archive research functions, given by BBC.

The sessions will be held in English with a service of simultaneous translation into Spanish.

To take part in RecDoc, please consult our web page: and sign up on line, and, beware! places are limited!

Look forward to seeing you there!
