>>Special programme IDFA 2001
>>23-30 november, Amsterdam
>>Whatís the impact of new, digital media on the traditional, 
>>creative documentary?
>>This year's DOCS ONLINE will raise some new questions looking at 
>>documentary filmmaking and what the effects and possibilities are 
>>when working with digital media and the internet. Starting off with 
>>a selection of interesting digital documentary projects, the 
>>International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam (IDFA) will allow 
>>space and time to exchange ideas, present work and discuss the 
>>impact of the changing infrastructure on the documentary landscape.
>>DOCS ONLINE.2 will be an inspiring platform for a broad audience; 
>>from traditional documentary-filmmakers to webaddicts, from 
>>researchers to producers, from students to experienced 
>>In addition to debates, presentations and ofcourse a special 
>>website, the audience can participate in discussions and meet the 
>>guests invited for this program.
>>The central issue of debate will be "The Real versus Mediated 
>>Life". Media-experiences have a big impact on the way we watch the 
>>world around us. Media have become our senses, and experiences in 
>>the 'real world'  increasingly refer to information we have already 
>>absorbed and images coming to us through media. Are there new ways 
>>of communicating documentary-stories?  How are filmmakers and their 
>>audiences reacting to CNN, docu-soaps and information overload?
>>DOCS ONLINE explores the changing nature of authorship, presents 
>>tools for documentary content  production and distribution and 
>>invites a growing online community to participate in the programme.
>>IDFA invites individuals and organisations to send in proposals for 
>>DOCS ONLINE.  Check the IDFA website for more information 
>>www.idfa.nl or email to the editors of the team:

>>We are looking for online-documentary projects and filmmakers with 
>>an interesting take on the use of digital media. Organisations 
>>which explore the infrastructure of the web as a platform for 
>>documentaries are also invited to come forward. Deadline 15th of 
>>October 2001
>>During the festival the public will have permanent access to the 
>>DOCS ONLINE computers at the festivallocation 'de Balie'. There
