In 2018, photographer Jessica Dimmock made her directing debut on the Netflix streaming service with her ten-part documentary series “Flint Town”. Dimmock, who is based in New York City, is the best proof that photojournalists who work with cinematic and interactive online formats often reach an entirely new audience without merely scratching the surface of their topics. In our Live Talk at 4pm, she will tell us what photographers can learn from filmmakers. The interview will be moderated by Ed Kashi, who has been working multimedially as a photographer for over 20 years.
Session was hosted by VII Photo.
All Live Talks are free of charge. But you can make a donation for the festival. Any sum is welcome. Please donate.
