There are still some spaces available for the Center for Social Media
conference, Media That Matters. This is a heads-up for friends and
colleagues; it usually sells out, and I donít want filmmakers, funders,
teachers and students who are thinking about it to lose out!
Feb. 10-11, 2011
Katzen Arts Center, American University in Washington, DC.
Registration $100, Students $50.
Full agenda at: <http://centerforsocialmedia.org/making-your-media
The conference will feature a keynote from Katy Chevigny, Co-founder and
Senior Director of Arts Engine and Producer of *Pushing the Elephant*, and
panels on how documentary filmmakers are producing media across platforms,
ethical dilemmas in environmental and wildlife filmmaking, collaboration in
filmmaking, and innovations in radio storytelling.
**New this year! Fair Use Workshop, Thursday, February 10, 2:30 pm:**
** Fair use-- the right to use copyrighted material without permission or
payment, under some circumstances, has saved many filmmakers money, without
jeopardizing their own royalties. How does it work? Spend an afternoon
learning how to make a fair use decision without a lawyer; finding out the
latest news on employing fair use, and on DMCA exemptions that allow you to
break encryption on a DVD; and testing out your fair use talents. Led by
Patricia Aufderheide and legal scholar Peter Jaszi, with CSM Grad Fellow
Katie Bieze. *More

MTM is presented in partnership with the Media That Matters Festival, which
is a project of Arts Engine, Inc.*
