The interactive documentary in a cross-platform, community context

The cross-platform documentary is the latest evolution of the documentary form, and this paper contributes to the discussion on cross-platform documentary by focusing on online productions that emerge from partnerships with community organisations. Using case studies,I will examine the aims and benefits of generating cross-platform documentaries in such community contexts. Cross-platform documentary exists within a tradition of interactive documentary as theorised by Nichols (1991), and the updating of this mode gives rise to new forms of collaboration that in turn encourage a transformation in audience engagement and participation.
