Copyright

  • If participants record a tutor, or material presented by a tutor during a workshop, permission must first be sought from the tutor. Workshop material copyright remains with Far South Film and the Tutor(s), and material can only be used by the participant for personal use – it may not be further copied, sold, published, broadcast, shared or uploaded to the Internet.
  • Participants may use material that they have filmed themselves at the workshop for a show reel, provided permission has been obtained from any other third parties involved in the film and the showreel is for private purposes only (eg to send to an agent, or as part of an application for entry to a tertiary education institution).
  • Participants are responsible for ensuring that audio/video/images in their films do not breach copyright, that permissions are obtained and that artists are credited as per licensing requirements.
  • If participants wish to submit films made during a workshop to festivals, they must obtain written permission from Far South Film – contact us.
