Posted Wednesday 27 May 2020

Register now for the 14th annual Doc Edge Forum, online and worldwide from this Friday 29 May - Monday 1 June. Thank goodness it's a holiday weekend (for those in New Zealand at least) because Doc Edge has crammed in as much as they could into five 2.5 hour programmes! From keynote addresses from the NZ Film Commission, NZ On Air, Roger Ross Williams and Thom Powers to panels discussing the industry post Covid-19 and its responses in funding, production, international collaborations, delivery, online digital exhibition and festivals to a timely discussion on indigenous and ethnic documentary storytelling, Doc Edge Forum has something for everyone. No one gets fed this year, but you will be well-entertained and inspired!

A 4-day pass is only $100 and $50 for students.
