What relationship does a filmmaker have with truth?

This seminar will consider the fine line that exists between facts and their interpretation – can a film ever be truly objective? How can a real-life event be converted into an ‘entertainment property’?

What responsibilities does a filmmaker have to the communities and stories they are telling? This session will also look at the increasing global demand for ‘fact-based’ stories and documentaries; and consider the questions this trend has raised about authenticity, reality, and motive in filmmaking.
