While it may be difficult to see beyond presidential headlines, there’s much at stake with our upcoming election, including filmmaking as we know it. The Trans-Pacific Partnership, a controversial global trade agreement among twelve countries, is under review for possible ratification. If implemented, new regulations could pose unforeseen legal challenges that will limit the production, distribution, and use of media, including the much-valued Fair Use clause.
Join DCTV for a timely panel discussion about the core legal and infrastructural pillars that define and permit one’s right to privacy, cultural production, intellectual property, information technologies, and freedom of expression. With Burcu Kilic from Public Citizen, filmmaker and archivist Sierra Pettengill, and attorney Neil J. Rosini, moderated by Sam Gustin a correspondent at VICE Motherboard. Following the discussion, attendees will be given info and tools to call their representatives and voice their views.
Free! First come first served. Doors open 6:30pm.
