Digital Platforms: Why Short matters! / Flore Deroose (Zoomin.TV)

Digital platforms are popping up like mushrooms in the online. What are the chances and what are the risks distributing documentaries in this way? How does it influence and change form and content of non-fiction films? Short Form is more than just a question of length: it is an entire new genre where more and more digital channels, VOD distributors but also film festivals and film schools plug into. As a documentary maker, you can increase your success with creating Short Form Cod.

As Director of Editoral at zoomin.TV Flore drives the workflow of short and medium short form productions together with a talented and multi cultural team of producers for the online magazines #First2Know, #LocalHeroes, #BrainChips, #SparkyThoughts, #JustMe & #FuturePlanet. Each magazine evolves around a mission inspired by people with a purpose in life. With a background in visual anthropology and research journalism, Flore has always been fascinated about what drives us and what values shape and reshape our thoughts and actions. Especially generation Z - the generation of youngsters born after 95 - has been an important inspiration in rethinking (social) media, storytelling and the new business models that emerged in our digital world.

Imagining the Cinema of the Future / Mads Damsbo (Makropol)

The classic format of cinema as we know it hasn’t changed in 100 years. But with the arrival of immersive technologies like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Live Performance Capture a new landscape of cinematic opportunity has emerged. In this new landscape, what would the cinema space of the future look like? This question has been on the mind of Makropol for more than 5 years: Since their critically acclaimed film installation ‘The Doghouse’ up to their recent massive 400 m2 VR installation ANTHROPIA.

With a background in film and media directing and with a passion for technology and experience design, Mads founded Makropol that for 7 years have been involved in a wide variety of alternative projects exploring the frontier of new media storytelling. He considers himself a new reality craftsman and creative producer, and sometimes a starving artist and conceptual junkie.

Presented to you in Partnership with Sarajevo Film Festival.
