Open forum on screen heritage

An open forum on the future of the UK's screen heritage has been organised by Roehampton University and Leeds University on behalf of MeCCSA. The one-day symposium on Saturday 22 September is free, and will 'provide an opportunity for stakeholders to discuss what needs to be done to ensure the long-term future of our moving image and screen heritage'. The programme will cover issues such as 'archiving policy and selection, intellectual property and copyright, documentation collection, accessibility and institutional models'. Speakers include BFI Director Amanda Nevill, Adam Lee from the BBC, Lynne Brindley from the British Library and Murray Weston of the British Universities Film and Video Council.
