Audiences are the new avantgarde

Abstract by Vinca Wiedemann

Global audiences are rapidly adapting to new ways of cinematic storytelling. Every night they stream the newest film or serial, and the following night they demand more of the same and even more advanced storytelling.

But new films and series take years to create and produce. What does it take for creators and industries to create fresh and rich storytelling in a world of emerging media and genres, changed financing and new markets?

Based on examples from my collaboration with international young film talent as well as with Danish veterans Lars von Trier, Susanne Bier and Thomas Vinterberg, I will focus on orality and collective dialogue as interesting tools for future storytelling, and I will suggest ways for the industry to initiate dialogue and feedback between different sectors and “tribes” that are not used to collaborate and communicate with each other.
