Open City Documentary Festival 2016: New Technologies, New Stories
Fri 24 June 2016, 14:30 – 16:00 BST
VR is the buzzword of the year with VR cinemas opening in Berlin and Amsterdam. New technologies have always been instrumental in revolutionising storytelling. During this session we explore the ways filmmakers, artists and documentary-makers are using new tech in their work. We’ll explore creative appropriations of big data, VR, twitbots, augmented reality, audience immersion and participation, creating conversations that allow the R&D folk to engage with the content creators.
During the day, a selection of works will be on display in the Festival Hub. This small curation features works by artists making use of these new technologies to tell engaging stories.
