Verging 2016 is a two-day symposium organized by four PhD students in the Cinema and Media Arts program at York University in Toronto. This graduate-run symposium is a free event for all participants, students and the general public. The symposium is partly co-sponsored by York’s Future Documentary Lab, Cinema and Media Arts Department and the Norman Jewison Speakers Series, under the supervision of our conference director, Professor Brenda Longfellow, renowned documentary scholar and director of Offshore.
Through workshops and panels, our symposium will examine current, completed, or in-progress projects to understand how to incorporate emerging technologies in both documentary making and consumption. How do we learn, practice, and teach today’s documentary language?
