Special events this year will be live-streamed on evenings across the festival, featuring innovative performance lectures, ‘live storytelling sessions’ and augmented sound work. The Industry Programme will include masterclasses and panels on a variety of timely subjects for the documentary world, such as 'Confronting the Colonial Gaze', 'Questioning Authorship' and 'Complex Access’.

Programmes will be accessible through Open City’s unique streaming platform, in partnership with Festival Scope and Shift72.
