This event on film and fair dealing took place at Birkbeck on Monday 6th November, 2017. Essay filmmaker Charlie Lyne explained the process of using a fair dealing defence to exhibit his films, with particular reference to ‘Missing Episode’ screened on BBC2’s Performance Live slot in October 2017. Catherine Grant, Birkbeck’s new professor of digital media and screen studies, responded to Charlie’s talk and outlined her own approach to audiovisual research and film essay. A Q&A followed.
