We l c o m e mysterious Door Into the Dark.

.......................................... Welcome to Interactive at Sheffield presented by Crossover Labs! Sheffield Doc/Fest has long featured interactive content as part of its programme and we’re very excited to have become our own festival within the Festival. This is your own special guide to the sessions, films, installations and events we have at Interactive at Sheffield. The Crossover Summit is a day-long series of talks exploring the outer edges of documentary and it returns to Sheffield Doc/ Fest on Sunday 8th June with talks kicking off at 11:30am. We’re honoured to have innovation expert Robert Tercek giving the opening keynote, where he’ll be addressing the impact that surveillance will have on documentary filmmaking in a talk you won’t want to miss.

We’ve got a packed programme of sessions offering advice and insight into the craft of interactive documentary. From the opportunities hackathons offer filmmakers in What the Hack? through to a look back at one of Channel 4’s most ambitious crossplatform projects to date; Live From Space, the interactive sessions are a must for any documentarians looking to learn more about the impact of digital technology on their work. In the Millennium Gallery we also have a series of presentations of some of our favourite interactive projects from the Festival, giving content creators the chance to discuss their work. The Crossover Market is also back for a third year and is the place for digital and interactive funders and mentors to meet the best new projects in development. As well as pitching ideas to cross-platform commissioners and digital gurus, projects can meet with representatives from digital agencies, brands, 3rd sector representatives and other potential supporters from outside of the traditional film and TV industries.

We have 10 fantastic speakers offering insight into the future of documentary, including the amazing Nonny de la Peña explaining the power of immersive journalism and Ian Forrester from BBC R&D discussing the tech that will be driving innovation for years to come. After The Summit, Nathan Penlington brings the brilliant Choose Your Own Documentary to the Crucible Studio; an unmissable story of obsession that you control. The beautiful Millennium Gallery is the new home of interactive content in the brand new Interactive Exhibition, featuring docs that you can play, touch and experience. Floating in space, rioting in the streets and playing with typography are just a few of the things you’ll be able to do. Millennium Gallery also houses our first original artist commission; a piece by South Korea based YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES entitled My Life as a Bloody Sheffield Butter Knife. With a title like that you know it’s going to be worth the trip. And if interacting with screens isn’t enough, you can immerse yourself in the world’s biggest news stories with Nonny de la Peña’s VR technology in SIF or alternatively, take a short walk down Sidney Street through the

THE INTERNET’S OWN BOY - THE STORY OF AARON SWARTZ + Q&A SAT 07 JUNE / 16:30 / LIBRARY THEATRE .......................................................................................

XO SUMMIT

.......................................................................................

SUN 08 JUN / 11:30 / CITY HALL MEMORIAL HALL .......................................... Willingly or not, we are about to enter an era of near-total transparency. In the very near future, the devices that surround us will constantly monitor our activity. The result will be a nearly comprehensive store of data about human behaviour and it may well yield significant benefits but it may render obsolete the century-old tradition of documentary filmmaking. How will the role of the documentary filmmaker change in a world in which every piece of information is recorded, indexed and stored? In this short presentation, Tercek will share examples from all over the world. In a world saturated with information overload, the documentarian must move beyond mere chronicling of events and the accumulation of detail to something more: creating a platform for social change.

ROSEMARY LERNER - QUIPU PROJECT PRESENTATION SUN 08 JUN / 12:20 / CITY HALL MEMORIAL HALL .......................................... Short video presentation of the work in progress the Quipu Project, an interactive documentary that shares first-hand accounts of people affected by Peru’s unconsented sterilisation policy, which targeted over 300,000 indigenous women and men in the late 1990s. Rosemarie Lerner, co-director of the project, will speak about the specific conditions and characteristics of the story, which led to its technical choices and the overall design of the first prototype. The project is currently in development stage.

Nth Screen / Nth Camera is a platform for respectively playing and recording collections of synchronised videos across mobile phones and tablets. Running against the trend for us to communicate remotely, these multi-device, multi-segment, multi-viewpoint films are principally for us to create, enjoy and discuss together in social, co-located groups. Nth Screen encourages experimental films for collective witness, documentary, humour, drama and poetry. In this talk Kindberg will demonstrate taking a ‘groupie’ (selfies were yesterday) and show examples of Nth Screen films, including the song and flight of birds across mobile phones.

This session will focus on how digital can allow richer story elements to be explored than are available through linear forms. Wilson will touch on tools and platforms and look at how the content can be repurposed to deliver a new experience. She will also look at how to involve users in the story, either as activists or as participants. Digital isn’t just about making your content available on interactive devices – it’s working out how to include interactive as a key element of the experience.

In this session, producer Martin Rosenbaum explores in detail the process of turning the art of documentary into the art of the app. Martin worked with distinguished arts documentary director Adam Low and iPad app pioneers TouchPress, creators of Apple’s 2013 iPad App of the Year, to create new forms for the playful crossover of filmmaking and technology.

Interactive NOAH ROSENBERG - SINNERS VS SAINTS: HOW SMART, SERIOUS AND SLOW STORYTELLING CAN CONQUER ALL THAT CLICK-BAIT SUN 08 JUN / 15:05 / CITY HALL MEMORIAL HALL .......................................... The internet is a crazy, crowded place — we all know that. New technologies are lowering the bar for digital storytellers and spawning copious click-bait cowboys, copycats and other curiosities. What does it take to rise above the noise and have a shot at storytelling stardom? Narratively founder Noah Rosenberg pops open the hood on his innovative media startup and helps us plot our own entrepreneurial paths through the beguiling world of digital content.

Piggybacking on recent advances in gaming technology, de la Peña uses the latest virtual reality goggles coupled with compelling audio to create a first person experience of the events and situations described in news and non-fiction events. Harnessing the sense of presence - of being there - that comes with these 3D technologies, de la Peña’s work allows an audience member to personally engage with a story through unprecedented access to the sights, sounds and even feelings and emotions, which accompany the news.

TOM PHILLIPS - GOING VIRAL, TWITTER STORMS AND DOING IT WRONG

Sun day 08 Jun e KARA OEHLER - GIFS, MOVIE CLIPS AND THE NEW VISUAL LANGUAGE SUN 08 JUN / 16:50 / CITY HALL MEMORIAL HALL .......................................... The meaning of a GIF, like all visual symbols, is built through common cultural understanding. The reason a GIF of Jack Nicholson knocking on the door in The Shining says so much, so quickly, is because of the shared lexicon of popular culture. GIFs are elemental building blocks of the internet’s language and now we’re using them to communicate emotions and reactions quickly and, at times, with delicious ambiguity. Oehler will talk about the ways people are using GIFs today to tell and remix stories and share opinions with this new emotional shorthand.

IAN FORRESTER - PERCEPTIVE DOCUMENTARIES: HOW CONTEXT CHANGES THE WAY YOU TELL STORIES AGAIN SUN 08 JUN / 17:20 / CITY HALL MEMORIAL HALL .......................................... Forrester’s research is into the area of Future Narrative and Storytelling, Perceptive Media is a new kind method of broadcasting, which pairs the best of broadcast with the best of the internet to create an experience like sitting around a camp fire telling stories. Perceptive Media could allow writers to tailor documentaries to the audiences based on many factors such as learning ability, attention, context and absorbs and makes sense of the internet of things and quantified self.

Everybody wants to go viral. But how do you get to go viral - and frankly, are you sure you want to? Using both real-life examples and stuff he just made up, Tom Phillips tackles the big questions - is there a formula to making it big on the internet? (er, sort of but not really); how can you best use viral tricks to your advantage? (hope, pray, cry bitter tears); can you keep control of something once you put it online? (hahaha nope); and is the internet a terrible thing that should be turned off immediately? (yes).

Wind down from the Crossover Summit with a drink in our Interactive exhibition where we’ll be toasting the interactive and arts projects. We’re proud to bring a new work to the Festival from the brilliant South Korea based YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES; the wonderfully titled ‘My Life as a Bloody Sheffield Butter Knife’ and Vicki Bennett’s (People Like Us) wondrous ‘Consequences – One Thing Leads to Another’, along with a host of brilliant interactive documentaries that you can watch, play and experience.

With changing expectations from audiences of how they experience entertainment and advancements in the technologies that allow them to take part in stories, entertainment will fundamentally understand who we are, who we’re with and how we feel when experiencing entertainment in the future. This panel looks at how audiences could take part in stories, be it children or adults participating in live events or in cinemas and theatres. It will also discuss available technologies, from looking at the audience’s facial expressions and heart rate, to the use of tablets, and what opportunities that brings for content producers to deliver new types of entertainment.

TUE 10 JUN / 11:45 / MILLENNIUM GALLERY ..........................................

TUE 10 JUN / 14:00 / MILLENNIUM GALLERY ..........................................

Type:Rider is a game-documentary created by Cosmografik which aims to revive interest in the history of typography through an interactive and transmedia experience including: a video game, a social game and an Interactive installation. Type:Rider has been nominated for a host of international awards and received rave reviews from both gaming and documentary communities who praised its beautiful design and fiendish platforming.

THANKS TO KAMAL ACKARIE

..........................................

This year the Crossover Market is bigger and better than ever. It's the Festival’s dedicated marketplace for interactive and digital projects and those that are fundraising and distributing in nontraditional ways using digital technology. Selected from open submissions, projects will meet with interactive and digital funders and experts in matchmade one-to-one meetings. These meetings will take place in the Millennium Gallery on Saturday 7th June 2014. The Crossover Market puts projects that are using digital media in interesting ways, next to one another, whether for creation, funding, distribution, exhibition or marketing. This is a space ripe for creating new connections and relationships so we’ll be bringing together all the people and projects using online resources and digital technology to form new relationships and new creative projects in a brand new marketplace and pitching forum.

Kamal Ackarie is an independent producer and curator with a history in large-scale international touring. As Technical Director and Associate Director of Forma Arts and Media (20022012), he developed long-term working relationships with artists such as Ryoji Ikeda and Lynette Wallworth, actively supporting the evolution and experimentation inherent in the process of these artists’ works. In 2007 he co-curated Becks Fusions, culminating in the commissioning of 10 films by visual artists. In addition, he has facilitated many signature one-off large-scale projects with artists such as Charles Atlas, Antony and the Johnsons, Chris Watson and Diamanda Galas. Kamal sees his work in the realm of technical and curatorial facilitation - enabling artists to move their work forward to its next stage at a critical juncture. In the broadest possible sense, his focus is on supporting the artists he works with in taking bold artistic leaps that often require fearless wrangling of multiple technologies.

MY LIFE AS A BLOODY SHEFFIELD BUTTER KNIFE

Exh ibitio n CONSEQUENCES (ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER)

..........................................

My Life as a Bloody Sheffield Butter Knife presents, against a backdrop of violence, food, sex, emerging countries, E.P.N.S. (Electro Plated Nickel Silver), and immigration, the unvarnished story of a wayward offspring of George Butler & CO. Ltd, Trinity Works, Sheffield. It’s the story of a legacy and a unique glimpse into a butter knife’s trials, tribulations and even improvised tracheotomy. The eponymous hero speaks openly and intimately about his beginnings in Sheffield and his adventures leading to his chance encounter with Young-hae and Marc of YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES.

The “original” in relation to the “copy” (coming from the word “copia”, meaning multitude and abundance) interests me as an artist working with collage and appropriation. Nothing created as an object or product can be traced 100% to an origin – everything is relative, literally – it has a mother and father. Much like speed, dimensions, size, the terms of experience are reliant upon conditions, there is NO absolute. This is reflected when similar creative works and inventions occur at the same period. No man is an island, but the island has lots of mirror mazes… in fact some mirrors can be walked through. – Vicki Bennett

With over 1,500 paths and multiple endings, his destiny is in your hands. Choose wisely.

Channel 4 and Arrow Media promised to do Space in a way that no other broadcaster has attempted before. Rather than looking out at the cosmos they wanted to show a warts and all version of Space from the view point of the astronauts on the International Space Station. What does it take to become an astronaut? What dangers do they face? What can they tell us about the state of our planet from 250 miles above us? How do you get access to NASA and how do you make a live, interactive broadcast form Space? In this session we assess how successful this daring campaign was both on air and online.

Green interprets our collective fascination with the book of world records as a profound need to try and make some sense of who we are by calibrating human experience and marvelling at its outer contours. Green himself travels to various reaches of the Earth to collect original footage of record-holding people, places and things — the tallest man, the woman with the longest name, the oldest living thing on the planet. He weaves into these original portraits a rich assembly of archival footage, his own live narration and an evocative live soundtrack from the chamber group yMusic to create an indelible rumination on fate, human endeavour and the nature of our existence on Earth.

Acclaimed documentarian Sam Green began experimenting with ‘live documentary’ storytelling at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival with Utopia in Four Movements. Green returns to Sundance to develop the form with The Measure of All Things, a playful and beautifully poetic meditation on humanity, loosely inspired by the Guinness World Records book series.

Eight-year-old Peyangki’s widowed mother is unable to afford to enrol him in school so she sends him to the local monastery instead. He quickly has to adapt to life away from home, with only a single fellow student and the Lama for company. But big changes are on the horizon: a decade after their ruler opened up Bhutan to television and the internet, Peyangki’s tiny village is finally getting electricity. When his first television falls off his horse during transit, Peyangki’s uncle decides to return to the capital for another set and invites Peyangki along for the three-day journey. But will television bring happiness? As always, acclaimed filmmaker Thomas Balmes proves adept in transporting us to a remote corner of the world poised on the verge of great change, through astounding cinematography richly deserving of its Sundance award.

.....................................................................

What’s most inspiring about Aaron Swartz is not that he could read by the age of three, or was one of the internet’s most gifted pioneers as a young teenager, helping to steer the Creative Commons philosophy, RSS technology and countless other endeavours. No, what’s most inspiring about Swartz is that when so many internet entrepreneurs were trying to get rich quick, he was absolutely determined to use his intellect to make the world a better place, by increasing access to knowledge. As Swartz’s immediate family and friends Cory Doctorow, Tim Berners-Lee and other e-legends testify in Brian Knappenburger’s gripping documentary, Swartz was a connector whose prescient vision was at fatal odds with a U.S. legal system still operating in the dinosaur age. A year on from Swartz’s suicide, the world is still coming to terms with the devastating loss of a digital giant.

The 1960s was an extraordinary time for the United States. Unburdened by post-war reparations, Americans were preoccupied with other developments like NASA, the game-changing space programme that put Neil Armstrong on the Moon. Yet it was astronauts like Eugene Cernan who paved the uneven, perilous path to lunar exploration. A test pilot who lived to court danger, he was recruited along with 14 other men in a secretive process that saw them become the closest of friends and adversaries. In this intensely competitive environment, Cernan was sent into space twice, with his second trip being his first — and NASA’s last — mission to the Moon. As he looks back at what he loved and lost during the eight years in Houston, an incomparably eventful life emerges into view. Director Mark Craig crafts a quietly epic biography that combines the rare insight of the surviving former astronauts with archival footage and otherworldly moonscapes.

.....................................................................

In rural Iran, Sepideh has the strong emotions of any teenager. But rather than focusing on boys and pop stars, she is obsessed with stars of a different sort. Her interest in astronomy has given her a focus since the death of her father six years ago. She is happiest when stargazing with the telescope she bought with her inheritance and keeping a journal addressed to Albert Einstein. She is an active member of the local astronomy club, where her teacher Mr Kabiri holds her up as an example – and hopes that she will succeed where he himself has failed. Sepideh’s mother shifts between wanting Sepideh to live her dream of studying astronomy at university, and worrying that her daughter is headed down the wrong life path. Berit Madsen’s intimate observation of Sepideh’s world plays out like a drama as we follow her tenaciously pursue her dreams.

China is the first country to recognise internet addiction as a clinical disorder. Chiefly afflicting the teenage population, many parents have entered their children into rehab by resorting to some rather extreme measures. The bootcamp environment aims to reinstate a sense of order and discipline into their lives. Forced out of bed at dawn and subjected to lectures that start with prescriptive definitions of what a computer is, the boys predictably lash out in frustration. Still, camaraderie and playful bravado can both flourish in this setting: “15 days? I once played for two months straight,” one of them boasts. Within this microscopic examination is a web of complex relations that reveal the impact of technology on the individual, the family and a rapidly changing society. Acclaimed directors Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia’s intimate study of a phenomenon situated in the Chinese context resonates on a global level, in particular with industrialising countries in Asia and the global South.

To avoid disappointment we strongly recommend getting your tickets as early as possible. The Delegate Ticket Stand is open every day from 10.00am.
