Filmfestivals – A Lobby for the Documentary Film Industry?
A discussion about the future of film festivals
The documentary film industry is undergoing a structural change. This disruption is based on the rise of digital technologies, a development that is now pushed forward by a global crisis that forces festivals to re-evaluate their role in the industry once again. Together with our network partners DocsBarcelona, MakeDox and FIPADOC we present our ideas for this future and invite industry experts to discuss the role and the responsibilities of festivals for the genre of creative documentary.
