||Transmedia & Virtual Reality Platforms for New Documentaries
Ashland Springs Hotel Ballroom, 2nd floor | FREE (ticket required)
Sunday, April 10, 10:00-11:30am
Join us for thought-provoking and engaging discussions with AIFF16 filmmakers and Special Guests.
Using new digital tools and apps, documentary filmmakers are exploring how emerging media can communicate stories, imagine social change, and function as an interactive “open space.” Filmmaker Helen de Michiel will present her latest transmedia projects, Lunch Love Community and Berkeley vs. Big Soda. Brad Lichtenstein will demo his VR project, Across the Line, on the impact of anti-abortion protests on health centers and patients. Google VR headsets will be available for sampling after the panel.
Moderator: Vicki Callahan, is Associate Professor of the Practice of Cinematic Arts, Media Arts + Practice Division, USC, and teaches courses on digital culture, transmedia, and media strategies for social change.
