If you work for a museum, library, charity, community organisation or any other non-profit company you may wish to use archive footage in your exhibitons, screenings and projects.
There are two ways in which such organisations can use material from the collections:
1: PURCHASE FOOTAGE FOR EXHIBITIONS, SCREENINGS & PROJECTS
Subject to copyright permission, MACE can supply footage for a range of not for profit projects. We charge for the transfer of material from film and tape to the format required at a minimum hourly rate. Additionally, we charge an Agreement Fee for the use of the material which depends on the length of time it will be used in the project and the platforms in which it will be used (e.g public screenings, museum exhibitions, school workshops). These fees are heavily subsidised from our commercial rates.
Firstly, browse the catalogue online to find titles that are of interest, then contact the Team to request a quote for MACE's services or to request further information.
2: COLLABORATING WITH MACE
MACE is keen to collaborate with organisations from the early development stages of projects and exhibitions as a partner organisation. Why not initially introduce yourself by contacting MACE on firstname.lastname@example.org.
