Archive Fever: unlocking the storytelling potential of film archives

How can you use archival film to inspire and inform new stories? Turner Prize-winning artist and filmmaker Jeremy Deller 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 BBCBFI National Archive, Irish Film Institute and Northern Ireland Screen for educational use by young filmmakers. 

Using examples from Deller's own films and the Make Film History collection, the workshop will demonstrate the adventurous potential of archive footage in developing fresh work. Operating at the intersection of modern technology and the historical archive, this workshop provides a wonderful opportunity for young filmmakers to engage with the enormous untapped potential of our film heritage and integrate it into their practice.
