From 9-15 September 2020, the tenth edition of the Open City Documentary Festival London will celebrate the art of non-fiction and provide a platform for both young and established filmmakers to challenge the idea of documentary in all its forms. Taking place online this year, the programme combines film screenings, industry events, audio documentaries as well as selected cross-media projects. The special events lineup features performance lectures from Courtney Stephens and Bassem Saad, a presentation of exemplary works from the “Black Lives Matter Video Essay Playlist” with their creators in dialogue with the playlist co-curators Will DiGravio, Cydnii Wilde Harris and Kevin B. Lee as well as a presentation of the ongoing media project “Bottled Songs”, in which filmmakers Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee narrate their encounters with videos originating from the terrorist group the Islamic State (ISIS). More information on the festival can be found here.
