[Nettime-ro] FW: [spectre] CALL DOCS ONLINE 2001 AMSTERDAM


Special programme IDFA 2001
23-30 november, Amsterdam

What's the impact of new, digital media on the traditional, creative documentary?
This year's DOCS ONLINE will raise some new questions looking at documentary filmmaking and what the effects and possibilities are when working with digital media and the internet. Starting off with a selection of interesting digital documentary projects, the International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam (IDFA) will allow space and time to exchange ideas, present work and discuss the impact of the changing infrastructure on the documentary landscape.

DOCS ONLINE.2 will be an inspiring platform for a broad audience; from traditional documentary-filmmakers to webaddicts, from researchers to producers, from students to experienced professionals.
In addition to debates, presentations and ofcourse a special website, the audience can participate in discussions and meet the guests invited for this program.
The central issue of debate will be "The Real versus Mediated Life". Media-experiences have a big impact on the way we watch the world around us. Media have become our senses, and experiences in the 'real world'  increasingly refer to information we have already absorbed and images coming to us through media. Are there new ways of communicating documentary-stories?  How are filmmakers and their audiences reacting to CNN, docu-soaps and information overload?

DOCS ONLINE explores the changing nature of authorship, presents tools for documentary content  production and distribution and invites a growing online community to participate in the programme.

IDFA invites individuals and organisations to send in proposals for DOCS ONLINE.  Check the IDFA website for more information www.idfa.nl or email to the editors of the team:

We are looking for online-documentary projects and filmmakers with an interesting take on the use of digital media. Organisations which explore the infrastructure of the web as a platform for documentaries are also invited to come forward. Deadline 15th of October 2001

During the festival the public will have permanent access to the DOCS ONLINE computers at the festivallocation 'de Balie'. There will also be possibilities in presenting 'offline works' (cd-rom, dvd).  Please send in your details, data, a description of your project (max. 10 lines), URL's and/or tapes/cd's to
