DOXA Industry Day

DOXA Industry Day

In Vancouver, there is a newly emergent film culture, comprised of filmmakers who combine elements drawn from a broad spectrum of different cultural forms — everything from contemporary art practice to VJ performance — to make work that is not confined to any one definition of the genre.

This year DOXA’s Industry Day will offer panels on VR (interactive and augmented reality), professional development and networking opportunities (distribution, funding, discoverability and export), and panels with a focus on the creative practice of nonfiction cinema.

Industry Panels (each): $15 General / $10 DOC BC Members

Industry Day Pass: $60 General / $35 DOC BC Members. Industry Day Pass provides access to all Industry programming on Saturday May 6 at SFU, including the panels and Industry Reception.

Documentary film has increasingly incorporated elements of live performance (music, dance, theatre, and spoken word). While the opportunity to collaborate with performing arts organizations represents a new realm of programming possibilities, working with different disciplines can be complex. This panel will focus on the scope of programming possibilities, as well as the challenges of navigating other (different) modes of presentation.
