This session explores the transformative role archivists play in helping documentary filmmakers monetize their content and mine their archival libraries. From the basement to the C-suite, archivists have become crucial collaborators, working alongside producers and directors to unlock the creative potential of archival material. This discussion brings together esteemed archivists, producers, and directors for an in-depth exploration of the collaborative and creative process involved in making archival cinema a commercially viable and artistically rich endeavor.
