Fair Use Featured at CINE Awards

The importance and useability of Fair Use for filmmakers was featured at the CINE awards in Silver Spring, MD on April 18. CSM director Pat Aufderheide and Washington College of Law Professor Peter Jaszi presented a preview version of the Center's latest video, "Fair Use and Free Speech in Documentary Film" to a packed audience for a panel on the Fair Use initiative's first year.

The video, to be released this month, describes the Documentary Filmmakers' Statement of Best Practices. Documentary filmmaking legend Al Maysles, who was being given a lifetime achievement award, joined them, saying, "What I learned today is going to make possible the release of the DVD of Grey Gardens in the form I wanted."
