What's it all about?
Join Screen South for a free Hi3 Network Panel: How Writers Can Shape the Future of Immersive Storytelling, part of the Folkestone Book Festival from Creative Folkestone.
This free panel session invites writers, readers, and audiences to think about their places in immersive storytelling. New creative technology including VR, XR (Extended Reality), and immersive media has radical implications for the future of storytelling. It’s broken down boundaries between art forms, provided opportunities for experiments in narrative, and challenged traditional models of writer-audience relationships.
The best XR projects have good writing and storytelling at their heart. So how can more writers take part in this world? Sacha Wares (associate director of the National Theatre’s Immersive Storytelling Studio, Innovation Associate at ETT and Founder of Trial and Error Studio) leads this inspiring panel discussion with writers and other storytellers who’ve worked with XR including Ella Hickson, Simon Stephens, and Gareth Fry.
Folkestone Book Festival
The Screen South Hi3 panel is a free session as part of Creative Folkestone’s Folkestone Book Festival. The festival returns this November from Friday 18 to Sunday 27 November, where they will be exploring the Shape of Things to Come with inspiring writers from across the globe.
Through a packed programme of events, talks, and conversations we will be examining the most pressing issues of the day. Some events will look back at the past to see what lessons can be learned, while others imagine unknown futures. Topics will range from brains and bodies to life and leisure, and so much more.
