Film description

How can you use archival film to inspire and inform new stories? Filmmaker and artist Esther Johnson leads this workshop on the creative re-use of archive film, in collaboration with the Make Film History project, which makes available archive films from the BBC, BFI National Archive, Irish Film Institute and Northern Ireland Screen for educational use by young filmmakers. Using examples from Johnson's own films and Make Film History collection, the workshop will demonstrate the rich potential of using archive footage in developing fresh work.
