Cinemateket/Visningsrommet USF

 

Can virtual reality change reality?

 

National documentary seminar will be held for the 8th time during the festival. Filmmakers, students and tech enthusiasts are welcome to inspiring days at Cinemateket USF.

 

Monday 26. September

Thematically, the seminar continues where last year left off, with virtual reality, interactivity, immersive storytelling and trends within film and art, such as how the VR technology can influence journalism and documentarism, with a focus on VR as empaty generator. VR storytelling is also used by humanitarian organisations to create empathy with people who are in crisis.

Tuesday 27. September

Day two of the seminar will deal with the crossover hybrid film. With hybrid film, one typically means documentaries that use fiction elements, staged events and re-enactments as a part of the storytelling. There are several examples of this in this year's festival program, often stylized and extraordinary documentaries that are in the borderland to the visual arts.

Pieter-Jan De Pue (THE LAND OF THE ENLIGHTENED), Bahman Ghobadi (A FLAG WITHOUT A COUNTRY), Christine Cynn (SHOOTING OURSELVES), Patric Chiha (BROTHERS OF THE NIGHT)

 

At the seminar, we wil meet the filmmakers behind some of this years' best films within this category which is not new, but has flourished in popularity in recent years. Based on their own films, the filmmakers will show clips and give an insight into their methods.
