Expanding documentary: Ecologies and dialogues
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Since its inception in 2016, Docuverse has been aiming to bring together a diverse range of people from independent filmmakers and artists to research-practitioners and industry representatives. With its third iteration, our symposium will continue to foster these cross-disciplinary conversations that are increasingly necessary to navigate the expanded documentary landscape.
For our annual event on the 9th of February 2018 at RMIT University in Melbourne, we invite contributors from different backgrounds to open dialogues into various directions:
- between filmmaking, programming and design thinking
- around points of tension and contact between different approaches and skillsets
- on how to navigate challenges that we cannot find clear answers to
- or any other aspect you deem relevant for advancing expanded documentary further
Following the idea that the electricity comes in the exchange, we specifically welcome experimental and more dynamic formats such as in-conversations, provocation-and-response or incubator workshops. To kick things off, on Thursday the 8th February, we will host a pre-conference evening including screenings of submitted projects and the launch of our e-Book. If you have a creative project you would like to show, a conversation proposal, or another format for a presentation, please send us a few sentences about your work or idea accompanied with a short description of how you would like to present it on the day. These proposals should not be longer than 150 words. Preference will be given to submitters who can attend in person. We also welcome short creative works submitted for screening.
Please email proposals to Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 20th, 2017.
