Beyond the limited pure technology references, what is interesting is that they all agree on one thing: the need to design a film keeping the audience in mind and the search of the audience before the film is finished.

Interactive Filmmaking Round Up Report

Interactive Filmmaking Round Up Report | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Over the course of a year, Sheffield Doc/Fest collaborated with Crossover Labs and film festivals around the country to run a series of workshops on interactivity and filmmaking. All six interactive platforms: Klynt, Racontr, Korsakow, Popcorn Maker, Treehouse and Storygami, give filmmakers the ability to create interactive elements for their films, without the need for a programmer to build them. 

(...) My role was to attend every workshop, try out the platforms, and write a report that would explain what each of them offers to filmmakers who wish to add interactivity to their films."

"As the field of documentary outreach matures from one where stories merely "raise awareness" to one where they may seed direct action, hear from three world-renowned impact producers and social engagement strategists, Lina Srivastava, Jennifer Macarthur, and Patricia Finneran, about the need and benefits to proactively plan and execute impact strategies for social issue films during production (not after), how engagement is a separate and distinct skill from outreach, the current state of social impact strategy, and how to pay for it."
