    Interactivity and Immersion - Creating Stories for 21st Century Audiences. Technology has radically transformed the way we tell, deliver and share stories. We now have an array of tools at our disposal to create, reach and engage audiences – from mobile apps, game platforms, ARGs, open source code frameworks, interactive editing, broadcast platforms and beyond. How can storytellers and filmmakers adapt to this new storytelling language and behavioural mindset? Ingrid Kopp, Michel Reilhac and Tishna Molla explore new approaches to creating experiences for 21st century audiences.
