i-Docs lab at Open City Docs Fest!

Open City Docs Fest is almost here and here at i-Docs we are pleased to announce we are running a lab on Saturday 22 June!

The i-Docs Lab is a session dedicated to the interactive documentary form. How can the web be used to offer new opportunities to speak about the real? How can documentary use digital interactivity to transform the audience into an active force? How does the production process work, and what are the challenges?

The i-Docs Lab is composed of two sessions: a detailed introduction by Sandra Gaudenzi to the emerging field of interactive documentary, followed by three case studies presented in depth by their producers. Each presenter will take you through the journey of their project, from idea phase through creative decisions to financial challenges. Documentary filmmaker Paulina Tervo will explain how they used the web to engage a whole community in Ethiopia in her web documentary Awra Amba; film producer Mike Paterson will share the challenges of crowdsourcing his project 94 Elements, and; Sidonie Garnier, co-producer of the French project Defense d’Afficher, will discuss how a mobile app can reinforce the content of a documentary by engaging an audience ‘on the ground’. The session will be hosted by Sandra Gaudenzi, co-organiser of i-Docs and interactive documentary specialist.


£12 / £10 Conc. Sat 22 June / 13:00 / The Studio
