Documentary use

Documentary filmmakers can use excerpts of SpiceTalks within their films, provided the speaker agrees. The SpiceTalks Conference, must secure permission from each individual speaker for any use not produced by SpiceTalks.


In order for us to approach the speaker with the request, you must provide SpiceTalks with a brief from the filmmaker on the intended use of the footage, the film’s perspective/point of view, and distribution plan. We also like to see brief bios on the creative team (producer, director, etc).


If the speaker agrees, we will provide the filmmaker with footage on a data DVD in one of our standard formats (any needed conversion will be the filmmakers’ responsibility).


No licensing fees are charged, but the footage must be accompanied by an on-screen credit (generally a lower-third) referencing www.spicetalks.com. We prefer the language “Full talk available at www.spicetalks.com”
