A platform for the discussion of media-political, technical and narrative trends

With Re:arraning Reality – Postproduction in Documentary Film, we set a new programme focus in 2021. In addition, we looked at current media policy from the perspective of developments caused by the pandemic. With our workshops and consultancies on impact production, festival strategies and international co-production, we could offer valuable trainings in this year's programme. The award and exciting case studies on virtual documentary narration featured new trends in documentary storytelling.

Due to the ongoing travel and contact restrictions to contain the Corona pandemic, the Perspectives took place online from 05 to 14 May 2021.
