The Rise of Short Form Documentary Content

Short Form Documentary Content

Each year, different trends emerge from SXSW programming and act as identifiers for where we’re at and where we’re headed. From the 12 significant trends identified by the SXSW Programming Team for the 2018 event, The Rapid Rise of Short Form Documentary Content explores the emergence of short-form documentaries in today’s cultural and technological landscape. Get to know this trend and related-SXSW sessions below that we think will dominate discussions this March.

The Rapid Rise of Short Form Documentary Content Trend

In the age of internet services and easy access to devices, anyone can generate content. But with so many users producing and self-distributing, this information overload calls for more distribution windows and faster consumption. To meet this demand, short-form documentaries have emerged as a leading genre for indie creators and professionals. But one question remains, in this sea of content how will companies and independent creators compete for recognition and success for their documentaries?

Now more than ever, it’s imperative to know how to navigate the Internet when uploading content. Learn the best strategies for exhibiting your short film online and how film festival regulations come into play in the session Short Films: To Stream or not to Stream, led by Dilcia Barrera of Sundance Film Festival, Jeffrey Bowers of Vimeo, and more. Don’t miss Pamela Torno of ITVS as she moderates a panel of filmmakers diving into the process of creating and maintaining an online presence as a digital documentary storyteller in How Documentaries Can Rise In the Webseries World.
