i-Docs 2014: a two-day event dedicated to the fast-developing world of interactive documentary – exploring the new forms and storytelling practices that are emerging where the internet and mobile technologies meet changing audience behaviours.

i-Docs brings together leading practitioners, producers and scholars to present, debate and reflect on cutting edge and award-winning work. Two full days of focussed and challenging conversations – interrogating new production models, considering methods of engagement and evaluation, exploring new territories for participatory and collaborative media.

Keynote speakers include new media artist Hank Willis Thomas (Question Bridge), documentary storyteller Elaine McMillion (Hollow) and media historian Professor William Uricchio (MIT Open Documentary Lab) and for Thursday evening we are delighted to confirm a special performance of the award winning interactive theatre event – Choose Your Own Documentary.

i-Docs 2014 is open for registration. Delegate passes can be booked now. We advise early booking as both previous conferences were completely sold out.

i-Docs is convened by Dr Judith Aston, Dr Sandra Gaudenzi and Associate Professor Mandy Rose with Research Associate Jess Linington and Research Administrator Nick Triggs. It is presented by the Digital Cultures Research Centre, UWE Bristol.
