2017 New Frontier Philadelphia Day Lab

New Frontier Philadelphia Day Lab
September 9-10, 2017


The New Frontier Philadelphia Day Lab and intensive, presented in collaboration with BlackStar Film Festival and Firelight Media, is designed to share learning about innovations in storytelling, so as to inspire participants to expand their creative practices and further their contribution to storytelling’s evolution. Through the lens of projects and with a focus on the art of story, on the first day participants will: explore field-defining projects; discuss the technological and cultural shifts that enabled these projects; learn about emerging creative practices and tools; and engage in conversation with New Frontier artist innovators.

On the second morning, September 10th, a handful of Philadelphia filmmakers/artists will be chosen for individual meetings with Sundance artists and staff, as well as regional experts in interactive media, to discuss an innovative storytelling project or body of work in progress. The second day intensive is invitation-only, selected via a brief submission process.
