Edinburgh International Film Festival: DocSalon

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a public festival/exhibition/event


We take the pulse of documentary filmmaking. Fiction/non-fiction hybrids, animation, re-enactments, VR and other experimental techniques can make us ask, Is it Documentary? At a time when documentary has never been more important, whether in combatting fake news or encouraging social change, are such experiments boon or bane? Join us for a public conversation, bringing together filmmakers, producers, festival programmers and you, the audience, to discuss what makes something truthful when documentary form is challenged. Hosted by Dr Leshu Torchin (University of St Andrews).
