Join us for the last event of WOFFF23 in partnership with London Film Academy
Tuesday 10 October, 4pm – 5:30pm, Ethics in Documentary Filmmaking panel event, free to attend, hosted on Zoom
Discussions about ethical documentary practices are not new but, over the last five years, a vibrant and sometimes volatile debate has emerged around ethics and documentary filmmaking. Filmmakers and media scholars are making explicit calls to action, questioning extractive practices in which a subject is unfairly represented or subjected to a process in which their trauma is used as plot points in sensational storytelling.
Join the discussion with experienced and award-winning documentary makers Camilla Hall (director of Subject – a film that explores the experience of sharing a life on screen) Dian Quon (producer of Minding the Gap – one of the documentaries featured in Subject) and Manuela Maiguashca who teaches media literacy in Amsterdam and is a visiting lecturer at the London Film Academy.
