Join an array of film and digital sector leaders for story-focused talks, screenings and a workshop that explore the creative potential of new technologies.

Films at all budget levels are now expected to be multi-faceted experiences, with audiences moving away from ‘passive viewing’, to becoming fully engaged and participatory in narratives. Games, social media, apps and interactive platforms all provide new spaces and viewing experiences, but with all the competing ‘noise’, how can filmmakers find their audience?

Aimed at those working in film, television, games and digital media. Tickets were available from Eventbrite and from the Duke’s @ Komedia picturehouse.

Presented by Lighthouse in partnership with Talking Point, and supported by Creative Skillset, this was a chance to explore the creative potential of new technologies when developing different kinds of film stories, and how to approach these opportunities in early development, as part of the artistic process, long before marketing.

Speakers included:
Simon Pummell, Writer & Director – Brand New-U
Lizzie Francke, Senior Executive – BFI Film Fund
Chris O’Reilly, Co-Founder and Luke Ritchie, Executive Producer – Nexus Productions & Nexus Interactive Arts
Christian Fonnesbech, Creative Director and Producer – Cloud Chamber Project
Katie Ellen, Distribution and Exhibition Manager – BFI Film Fund
Matt Locke, Founder – Storythings
Hilary Perkins, Digital Exec Producer (Previously Multiplatform Commissioning Editor, C4)
Philo van Kemenade – Creative Technologist & Initiator Popathon

The day ended with networking drinks.

Additional Workshop at Lighthouse (27 September)
In a connected event, we ran a hands-on collaborative workshop during which digital creatives were invited to work alongside award-winning filmmakers (from Lighthouse’s Guiding Lights and BFI Shorts programmes), on a selection of live film projects at various stages of production and development. Led by Matt Locke of Storythings, who shared the design approach he has developed over 15 years of working in digital media, this session explored the tools and creative strategies involved in creating stories that exist across multiple platforms and successfully engage audiences. Spaces for this workshop were very limited.

Date: 26 September (+ connected workshop on 27 September)

Times: 10am-6pm

Venue: Dukes at Komedia & Lighthouse

Conference (26 Sept): £15 / £10 Concession
