Berlinale: GRAP brings archive trends to the big stage

In addition to speed consulting for interested media professionals, who were able to ask our archive producers specific questions, two very successful talks and a large panel discussion in front of an international audience took place.

In these talks, directors, producers and archive producers shared their experiences with the challenges of archive-heavy documentaries but also the use of archives in feature films and even TV commercials, as well as trends in rights clearance and risk assessment. Another major debate centred around the classification of archive sources from dictatorships.

Once again, the EFM Archive Market proved to be a useful and enriching event for the industry, not only for archive producers, but also for those who wanted to discover the profession and hire experts for their projects in the future.
