Conference / Workshop
The Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts (SADA) will host a conference/workshop project on the current interplay between the film and game world. A group of internationally distinguished scholars, researchers and professionals will provide the basis for interaction with a special focus on narrative, design/world building and interactivity (main focus on interactive documentaries). Educators and students will approach those topics together in practice. The event will take place on the island of Fårö, Sweden (6-10 September 2015), where Ingmar Bergman lived and shot several of his world‐renowned works such as Persona or Scenes from a Marriage.
SADA has invited author and script consultant Linda Aronson, who will introduce the participants to nonlinear narratives. The part on interactivity will be presented by Sarah Wolozin (head of the Open Documentary Lab at MIT) and Katerina Cizek (documentary filmmaker, known for her work on the project Highrise). Alex Mc Dowell will introduce the audience to design and world building methods through a practical example, the RILAO project/workshop. Every morning will start with a keynote (75-90min), continue with the workshops (split over three days, approx. 3hrs a day) and will have short lectures/case studies (30min) in-between. An eventual workshop N 4: ”Farther the Eye Can See” will be hosted by the regional film centre of Gotland and will become part of the conference. They will re-examine landscape in cinema and through hands on projects, try out new configurations of landscape in cinema and expanded cinema practice.
