DREAM BIG, AIM HIGH

Auckland sees three of the world’s leading documentary and interactive storytellers. Each presenter will look at the state of the industry as well as explore what the future holds for both filmmakers and audiences.

Alongside the keynote speakers, Screen Edge Forum has assembled both New Zealand and the world’s leading screen industry talent to discuss the importance of documentary in a world filled with fake news, what makes a compelling cinematic documentary and consider how to produce immersive story worlds.

The Forum also explores the filmmakers and their working relationships. In a time where inclusion is very important to ensure diversity, the Forum also hears from practitioners as to how we can facilitate a more inclusive screen industry in New Zealand.

Alongside the Forum is Doc Pitch and Date a Doco (26 May), details as to how to attend will be provided shortly.
