Chicago Filmmakers Presents a FREE workshop on models of Interactive Storytelling for Film and Media makers
Filmmaking has gone far beyond the theatre and television screen. How do you increase community engagement (and therefore increase impact, views, sales, interest, etc) through "trans-media?" This panel will discuss different ways to incorporate interactive elements in your film and media project to increase its social reach and impact. Examples include interactive websites, mobile apps, online tools for activism, and more. Panelists include:
- Jack C. Newell (HOW TO BUILD A SCHOOL IN HAITI)
- Dan Rybicky (ALMOST THERE)
- Brian Ashby and David Schalliol (THE AREA)
- John Fecile ('63 BOYCOTT)
Time at the end of the event will be set aside to talk about the 2014 CDMPF grant and answer questions pertaining to applications.
Saturday, March 8 // 11AM – 2PM
FREE Admission made possible by the Voqal Foundation

When & Where
Chicago Filmmakers is a 40 year-old media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation and understanding of film and video as media for artistic and personal expression, as well as media of important social and community impact. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for artists to make films outside the mainstream marketplace, to distribute and exhibit this work, as well as to build audiences and to increase media attention for it. Recognizing the impact of mass media in contemporary society, it is additionally our goal to provide culturally diverse audiences with alternative images to those reflected in mainstream media and to broaden access to media education to include those typically left out of the process.
