Between Nov 15-17, the copy-me creative team took a trip to the mountains, for the first ever preview screening of our upcoming animated webseries, at Romania’s first ever Creative Commons film festival.
Here’s a rundown of the weekend, as witnessed, experienced, and hashtagged by copy-me.
# what we did
sat through a rundown of the Internet’s foremost hubs for open culture, as outlined by Tiberiu Turbureanu from the CEATA Foundation [Romanian language website];
presented the first ever episode of our upcoming webseries in a public screening, with an accompanying presentation;
listened to Mihai Ghiduc explore a parallel between free apples and copying culture; would we/should we still pay for free culture?
# who we met
Alina Floroi and Valentin Brutaru, the forces behind the first Romanian Creative Commons film festival; they won us over with infectious enthusiasm and an easy-going way of trusting that #thisisonlythebeginning;
Mihai Bodea, a Brașov-born, Bucharest-based architect, whose forray into documenting the current rennovation of Bucharest’s National Theater turned into a collaborative project, screened at the Creative Commons film festival;
# what we remembered
that plenty of Romanian filmmakers have been licensing their work within the Creative Commons framework: veioza arte and Stanca Radu are just two examples we were glad to come across once more;
