How can producers of films, radio broadcasts, music recordings ensure their creations are best preserved for the future? And could audiovisual archives be better used by the creative industries around the world to create new cultural products? There are numerous examples of productions using archival footage, from Peter Jackson's 2018 documentary film "They Shall Not Grow Old", to radio stations entirely composed of archived programmes. Can the best examples inspire and inform archivists how to grow and manage and provide access to the collections that they safeguard? Can the production sector collaborate more closely with archives to ensure a more efficient and comprehensive preservation of cultural heritage? This panel will be introduced by members of the Audiovisual Think Tank, a forum established in January 2018 by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to examine the key policies and strategic priorities for audiovisual archives of the future. It will be followed by case studies of successes of collaborations between archives and creators. The panel will end with a short Q&A with the audience on how archives/creators can cooperate successfully.
