Event Details

Mozilla and Power to the Pixel present THE EVOLUTION OF CINEMA, DOCUMENTARY AND THE WEB
Introducing One Millionth Tower, the HIGHRISE re-imagined.

What does citizenship mean in a transnational, globalised context?

One Millionth Tower, the latest strand of the multi-media, multi- award-winning HIGHRISE project from National Film Board of Canada, teams a group of highrise residents in Toronto with photographers and architects to re-imagine their surroundings and transform their dilapidated highrise neighbourhood into a vibrant, resident-led community.

Using cutting-edge open-source technology, this interactive documentary enables a 3D storytelling environment within a web browser, incorporating the magic of cinema, architecture and animation. A hyper-local story with a global resonance in its vision for a more human-friendly urban planet - and world wide web. highrise.nfb.ca

Emmy award-winning documentarian, Katerina Cizek will share insights into the creative and technological challenges and unique community collaborations in which this extraordinary work has been created. She will be joined by the pioneer of open-source cinema, Brett Gaylor of Mozilla Foundation's Popcorn Project for a Q & A moderated by Liz Rosenthal of Power to the Pixel.
