Today, dynamic gaming platforms are being leveraged to unlock interactive new modes of fiction and non-fiction narrative. In this panel, filmmakers whose work is featured in this year’s New Frontier program, together with creatives and educators, will discuss their experiences using these technologies to innovate and engage.
