Media Central: Politicians in the Archives: ABC censorship?
Co-hosted by Department of Media and the Centre for Research on Social
Inclusion, Macquarie University
Recently, the ABC refused to allow filmmaker Judy Rymer to use archival
footage in her film about refugee issues "Punished Not Protected"
the permission of the politicians involved.
We are planning to show part of the film, plus the Media Watch segment
drew attention to the ABC's actions, at a public forum to be held in
on the 26th of August. On the panel at the forum will be filmmaker Judy
Rymer, Richard Harris Executive Director of the Australian Screen
Association and lawyer Roy Baker from the NSW Communications Law Centre.
Michael Organ, Greens MP in the Federal House of Representatives (and
archivist at the University of Wollongong) will be the chairperson.
Watts has also been invited to delineate the ABC policy and explain its
implications for filmmakers.
The forum will be part of MEDIA CENTRAL - a series of free monthly
devoted to contemporary media issues, presented by Macquarie
Media Department. It will be jointly hosted by the Media Department and
University's Centre for Research on Social Inclusion.
Please come along to listen, ask questions and have your say while
with a drink at the Gaelic Club, 64 Devonshire Street, Surry Hills,
Thursday 26 August at 6.30pm for 7pm.
