The Documentary - Present and Future

All panels are free and open to the public.


How has the documentary form emerged as one of the most vital and exciting branches of filmmaking today? Advances in technologies for acquisition, editing, and innovative distribution have changed the face of documentary filmmaking. This panel will explore the expanding repertoire of production formats available to the documentarist. The growing popularity of true-crime documentaries (e.g., "Making a Murderer") will be discussed, as will the introduction of hybrid narrative/documentary forms to film and television. The panel will consider future trends in documentary topics, production styles, and distribution mechanisms in this fast-changing marketplace of ideas.
