In today’s media world, the omission of facts, manipulation of news and insidious propaganda are crucial issues for audiences seeking to understand current affairs.
This activity (registration required) invites short-film exhibitors working in the grey areas of reality to think about the role of the short documentary and its raison d’être for audiences and creators. During this critical discussion, the exhibitors will explain how to find and reach audiences across the barrier of the culture of doubt.
The discussion will explore the unique characteristics, language and conventions involved in the production and exhibition of short films.
