Reality Check: Telling a Different Story


IFFR 2021

Open for all IFFR Pro and Press badges

How can the industry better support a storyteller from the inception of an idea through reaching an audience whether they are working in shorts or feature films, a VR/XR work, web series, multimedia installation or anything in between? How can the whole ecosystem – including festivals, markets, funders, distributors and exhibitors -- better prepare for a plurality of voices and support fresh storytelling across all formats, without confining them to preconceived notions and existing structures?

Moderated by co-curator of IFFR Reality Check Wendy Mitchell with writer, director and producer of immersive works, Gayatri Paramerswaran (Nowhere Media), Kay Meseberg (Head of Mission Innovation at ARTE), Marie Logie (Auguste Orts) and Caspar Sonnen (Head of New Media at IDFA).
