International Conference 2007 at the National Film School, IADT Dun Laoghaire

DOCUMENTARY FILM in the 21st Century

Bringing academics, practitioners and policy-makers together in a series of panel discussions and key-note addresses, alongside documentary screenings, this conference provides a forum for an interactive debate from diverse perspectives on documentary in the 21st century.

The conference will focus on three challenges to the documentary form: the increasing dominance of the reality television format, the current impact of documentary in the public sphere and the changing nature of the form in the digital age.

ORGANISERS: IADT, Dun Laoghaire, D O’Connell and H Doherty.
