Making a documentary easily spans years, and during this development and production process often more cultural exchange and impact is created than during the so-called “theatrical release.” Bringing together the knowledge of filmmakers, curators, writers, bloggers and specialists for audience engagement, we explore how the web can enable us to rethink documentary production as an ongoing, holistic and culturally more diverse and democratic process. Topics to consider include cutting-edge interactive and cross-cultural work models, research and the creation of a public archive and how audience engagement helps grow a project’s effect at all stages.
