JOIN OUR HYBRID EVENT!
This innovative hybrid documentary event, combines 2 hyper local events with creative online engagement opportunities via livestream and twitter and Distrify. It’s a collaboration with the Shatford Centre in Penticton and OPEN CINEMA, MediaNet, Sunset Labs and in Victoria BC.
LIVE + VIRTUAL = HYBRID
What is a hybrid event anyway? A hybrid event combines and live local event with an online component, creating a dynamic hyper local event. OPEN CINEMA has been experimenting with this format since October 2012, with interesting results.
At our Season Ten finale and 100th event on April 24, 2013 a screening of the elegant powerful film ELEMENTAL in Victoria BC was followed by livestreamed post screening discussion, with invited guests Briony Penn, Caitlin Vernon and Jesse Baltutis. Filmmaker Emmanuel Vaughan Lee was our virtual guest on twitter. We had a twitter reach of 123,000 that evening, according to www.Hashtracking.com.
Join us as Get on the Doc Bus continues the conversation about documentary and community engagement, and shares our experience of hybrid events along the way.
