With traditional exhibition venues and physical festivals hampered by a global pandemic, filmmakers and new media artists are exploring new platforms online and in public spaces. But if the last six months have taught us anything, it is that Zoom and Netflix are not the only answer. How are filmmakers and new media artists creatively responding to this challenge? What can filmmakers and artists from the interactive and immersive field learn from eachother? How can we create new types of documentary experiences inside our living room, on a smartphone, in virtual reality or outside in public space? How can they inspire new formats and even inspire audiences to see public space, the internet, and the physical world in a different light?
