Tips on archive researching and rights clearing for filmmakers.

About this Event

If your film has historical references - chances are you are looking for archival images, footage and more to use. Hear from archival producer Amilca Palmer and filmmaker Pam Sporn, who worked together on Sporn's documentary DETROIT 48202: Conversations Along a Postal Route, which is on the festival circuit now and aired on America Reframed this year, on best practices and tips on archive researching and clearing rights.

A presentation of Third World Newsreel and the Documentary Forum at CCNY.

Pam Sporn is a Bronx based documentary filmmaker, educator, and activist. She loves listening to people tell stories about standing up to injustice in their own unique, subtle, and not so subtle, ways. A pioneer in bringing social issue documentary making into NYC high schools in the 1980s and 1990s, Pam substantively contributed to the growth of the youth media movement. DETROIT 48202: CONVERSATIONS ALONG A POSTAL ROUTE is Sporn's latest documentary. It received funding from JustFilms/Ford Foundation and was broadcast nationally on America ReFramed, PBS/World Channel's non-fiction showcase. Pam’s prior work includes the documentaries CUBAN ROOTS/BRONX STORIES, WITH A STROKE OF THE CHAVETA, REMEMBERING THE MAMONCILLO TREE, and DISOBEYING ORDERS: GI RESISTANCE TO THE VIETNAM WAR. Pam has received numerous grants and awards including: JustFilms/Ford Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Puffin Foundation, Latino Public Broadcasting, CUNY Caribbean Exchange, and the Bronx Council on the Arts.
