The Association of Commercial Stock Image Licensors (ACSIL) has unveiled its list of stock and archival footage exhibitors set to attend the second annual ACSIL Footage Expo.

Held at the Prince George Ballroom in New York City on June 9, the expo will feature leading suppliers of footage and images in the U.S. and Europe.

Exhibitors slated to attend this year’s event include NBCUniversal, Shutterstock, CNN, Bridgeman Images, WGBH, Footage.net, WNET/Thirteen, French National Archives INA, ITN Source, Reelin’ in the Years, Global Imageworks, WPA, Catch and Release, and Huntley Film Archives.

The ACSIL Expo will also feature a number of specialty panels with speakers from across the media, production and archive sectors. Sessions include “The Archive Inspired Film,” “Fair Use Boundary Wars,” and “The Future of Footage Licensing,” among others.

According to a global survey conducted by the organization, the stock footage industry has seen significant growth in the past five years, powered by new digital-first consumers in the areas of corporate non-broadcast, Internet video and educational publishing.

“As the media re-invents itself with new programming options for TV and digital and education, the deep resources of footage licensors are being tapped liked never before,” said Matthew White, executive director of ACSIL, in a statement. “Audiences are enjoying this new burst in archive-inspired programming, and The Expo provides an incomparable forum for creative communities to build programming ideas directly with the stock and archival sources.”
