Where Do Movies Go?

Nashville International Film Festival

This panel explores how filmmakers and artists collaborate with archives to reuse, sample, and recontextualize archival audiovisual footage. The panel will help filmmakers navigate the sometimes tricky routes to accessing rare historic footage, talk about where your film goes after its production run (and what happens when your own film becomes historic footage), and we will chat with filmmakers and archivists about their most innovative uses of archival footage.

Panel:  Moderator: Kelli Hix, Audiovisual Archivist; Filmmaker and Archivist:   Ina Archer; Filmmaker: Tom Neff; Archivist, Historian, Librarian: Rick Prelinger; Filmmakers: Tom Neff and Shelly Haysc
