The 14th International Documentary Forum will be the first Australasian industry event to go online since Covid-19. Don't worry, the sessions have been specially planned so you're not staring at your screen all day (or all night if you're in Europe). Spend a few hours with some of the world's finest industry experts, including Tom Oyer from the Academy Awards and Thom Powers, Artistic Director of DOC NYC and documentary programmer for TIFF. In a time of extraordinary disruption, the Forum will focus on the positive: opportunities that the new normal creates, new and effective ways to engage with audiences, how to be together alone, and rapidly-emerging trends in distribution strategy as the world - and our own filmmaking place in it - move even further online. The Forum will also shine a light on issues facing the local documentary industry and some very rapid and creative responses to those.
When: Friday 29 May - Monday 1 June, 2020.
