Photos and images
Movies that Matter always handles photos and visual material with care. Photos and visual material are taken during our festival, events and workshops to record the event and to give atmospheric impressions on our website, in the newsletter and/or social media. As soon as the news value of the image material has disappeared, only (part of) the photos are kept internally archived for historical purposes.

Attendees, visitors/participants will be informed in advance as well as possible about any image recordings. In addition, attendees will be made aware of this – as far as possible – during the event at the location. Are you recognizable on the image, but do you not appreciate this? Let us know and the footage will of course be removed at your request.
