i-Docs 2020 – Initial Keynote Line Up Announced!!

Postgraduate and ECR concessionary full delegate rate of £100 still available...

At a moment when we face urgent political, social and environmental challenges, i-Docs 2020 addresses the potential of evolving documentary forms as a means of creative response, as well as for place-making, convening and way-finding. The symposium is a space to articulate, critically engage with and interrogate how interactive and immersive non-fiction media can be harnessed to respond to complex challenges at a variety of scales.

As with all five previous i-Docs Symposia, i-Docs 2020 is hosted by UWE Bristol’s Digital Cultures Research Centre, and will be held at Watershed in Bristol’s Harbourside over March 25-27. (i-docs.org)

This year, we are thrilled to announce a partnership with Concordia University in Montreal, to present an exciting programme of simultaneous events at Concordia’s Feminist Media Studio, livestreamed to Bristol - including keynotes, panels and workshops.

The symposium is framed around three highlighted themes for debate:

*Climate and Ecological Emergency
*Platform Politics and Responsible Tech
*Bonding and Bridging: Making locally, thinking globally

For more on these visit: http://i-docs.org/2019/09/19/i-docs-2020-call-for-participation/

In addition to a rich programme of panels, workshops and work in progress sessions, i-Docs is collaborating with Arnolfini (https://arnolfini.org.uk) - Bristol’s International Centre for Contemporary Arts - in a showcase of innovative and immersive works from creators/artists including Darren Emerson, Hsin-Chien Huang, Bruno Moreschi & Gabriel Pereira, Francesca Panetta & Halsey Burgund, Duncan Speakman, Mitch Turnbull. Plus -  fresh to Arnolfini from the 58th Venice Biennale - Assembly (Angelica Mesiti).
