1.The current Landscape of Immersive Journalism

When we look back at 2016, we’ll see it as the year when virtual reality truly pushed its way into the mainstream of journalism. What is the current status of the Immersive journalism and how newsrooms are embracing immersive technologies to tell stories?

What main challenges do they face and how is the immersive journalism landscape is changing?

The panel will be moderated by Mária Rakušanová , Director of VR and New Media at Raindance Film Festival

2.Immersive Journalism - New Tools, new production methods

The embrace of Virtual Reality as a non-fiction platform has been a remarkably rapid development for the documentary industry

VR production is fundamentally different from traditional video-based storytelling, and presents new challenges for those with experience in video journalism. To make the transition into immersive documentary demands a rethink of everything we know about film - entirely new approaches to narrative structure, cinematography techniques and post-production -- as well as a thorough understanding of the viewer’s experience. In order to successfully exploit new technologies, immersive technologies are forging a new grammar of filmmaking

The panel will be moderated by Colin Warhurst ,Technologist at the BBC Blue Room

3.Immersive Journalism Content for Social Impact

The ability of immersive tech to viscerally connect people with an idea or a topic presents a tremendous opportunity for non-profit organisations to communicate better with their stakeholders.

The results so far are stunning. Charity: Water has seen overwhelming engagement with their new VR projects, including their immersive film The Source. UNICEF credits their VR project for doubling projected donations for their Syrian refugee fundraising campaign, and Amnesty International saw an unexpected spike in donations with a 16% increase in long-term giving for their VR campaign.

Is VR a hype or the future medium for the non-profit sector to bring about change?

We will explore how VR is changing the way NGOs and non-profits approach engagement strategies, asking how organisations can stand out with more and more venturing into immersive storytelling.

 

The panel will be moderated by Charlotte Mikkelborg , Director and Producer of Born to Exile.
