IDFA / CUT-n-PASTE organise DOCS ONLINE programme

In 2000 the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) 
started a special programme focussing on new practices and changes 
within the medialandscape according to documentary filmmakers and 
their audiences.
  After 5 years the festival will reanimate this 'DOCS ONLINE' 
programme and give a platform for the actual 'state of the art' in 
this area.

What can we say after five years?

Interaction designers and filmmakers DO work together.

Audiences ARE multichannel users to get their information and entertainment.

The development of new media platforms and the growth of devices to 
be used by a big audience ask for other approaches from the 
documentary field. While the devices become cheaper and lighter new 
ideas can lead to other ways of storytelling.

At the coming festival from 23 November - 03 December 2006 DOCSONLINE 
will focus on this theme by inviting some (film)makers, artists and 
documentary storytellers, who are inspired by the new means and ways 
and work in different ways. Authors who use other channels and 
platforms to tell their stories and who interact with their audiences 
in different ways.

IDFA makes an appeal to filmmakers and artists to present their work 
within DOCSONLINE.  We, the editors (Cut-n-Paste) are urgently 
looking for interesting documentary projects.

DOCSONLINE will focus on the actual 'state of the art' therefore we 
are NOT looking for ideas to exchange material or collabarate in 
research and financing, but we ARE interested in strong content in a 
strong concept, which looks attractive and communicates in a logical, 
effective way.

There MUST be a project we haven't heard about in the documentary 
practice which you might have seen which we want to present to a 
bigger audience.

So, TELL us soon!
