ACSIL Hosts 2016 Footage Expo In NY

Posted on 5/10/2016 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

The major sources of stock and archival footage will exhibit at the ACSIL FOOTAGE EXPO 2016 which is being held at the historic Prince George Ballroom at 15 East 27th Street, New York City on June 9, 2016.

The ACSIL Expo, now in its second year, will feature the leading suppliers of footage and images in the US and Europe, running the gamut from major US news organizations to specialty archives, to microstock companies, to public television and music footage archives.

Exhibitors will include NBCUniversal, Shutterstock, CNN, Bridgeman Images, WGBH, WNET/Thirteen, Reelin’ In The Years, Global Imageworks and many other libraries. Joining the roster from abroad will be INA (the French National Archives), ITN Source and the Huntley Film Archive.

Scheduled in the afternoon and capitalizing on its success from last year, the ACSIL Expo will also feature specialty panels with senior leaders in media, production and the archive industry. Sessions will include “The Archive Inspired Film”, “Fair Use Boundary Wars”, “The Future of Footage Licensing”, “Hidden Gold in Filmmaker Archives” and more. Widely popular in 2015, the panels and industry discussions add enormous value to the Expo and allow for a fascinating exchange between the creative and editorial community and the ever-evolving world of digital imagery.

“We are extremely excited to welcome back the footage community to the ACSIL FOOTAGE EXPO 2016.” said Edward Whitley, new ACSIL President and President of Bridgeman Images. “We have a fascinating and diverse line up of panels and panelists to discuss the current and future landscape in the world of motion content and where everyone involved in footage can learn, converse and network with industry peers.”

As reported in last year’s ACSIL GLOBAL SURVEY, there has been significant growth in the footage business in the last five years as well as changing business models. A new customer base empowered by digital technologies is pushing the increased demand for stock and archival imagery, including new customers in the areas of corporate non- broadcast, internet video and educational publishing.

“As the media re-invents itself with new programming options for TV and digital and education, the deep resources of footage licensors are being tapped liked never before,” remarked Matthew White, Executive Director of ACSIL. “Audiences are enjoying this new burst in archive-inspired programming, and The Expo provides an incomparable forum for creative communities to build programming ideas directly with the stock and archival sources.”

ACSIL expects attendance from media executives, film and movie producers, educational administrators, archival researchers, digital publishers, corporate and advertising agencies, and others involved in communicating with video. Access to the exhibit hall is limited but free for media professionals. Conference passes are available for $35 (before May 13) or $50 (after May 13).
