There are two weeks left to register for Opening Up the Archives to Young Filmmakers, a free one-day online symposium on September 11th: www.archivesforeducation.com/symposium

The symposium explores the creative and learning opportunities archive material can offer to young filmmakers, including the launch of the new Make Film History project, funded by AHRC and the Irish Research Council, which makes available archive films from the BFI, BBC Archive, the IFI Irish Film Archive and Northern Ireland Screen for creative reuse by young filmmakers. 

The day will include case studies of working with archive material in education and the community, a session on copyright and creative reuse, and a masterclass with Rubika Shah, director of the acclaimed archive-driven documentary White Riot, which documents the Rock against Racism movement in the 1970s.

Registration is free through Eventbrite and you can follow the project on Twitter.
