Open City Documentary Festival 2016: Documentary or Journalism?
Fri 24 June 2016, 15:30 – 17:00 BST
There is a blurry line between journalism and documentary filmmaking. Recent docs like Virunga and Citizenfour involve high level investigative journalism and news breaking. Should the filmmakers then be afforded the same protections as journalists and abide by the same principles, or does a different ethical framework apply? In this session, hosted by The Frontline Club, we’ll explore the line between journalists and documentary filmmakers, and ask how filmmakers can best navigate that distinction.
