The second year of Frame Doc Lab and Frame Doc Talks programs will be held in Melbourne from February to June 2024.
Frame Documentary is running a public and industry program to promote new and existing work and talent within the immersive media space.
The four teams selected for the Frame Doc Lab program are Lichen Kelp and Luna Mrozik Gawler, Eugenia Lim and Eva Otsing, Chris Luscri and Tully Arnot, Sarah Walker and Roslyn Oades. Each team will receive $15,000 of development funding to support their work within the dedicated lab program.
A public-facing program of talks will be delivered in partnership with State Library Victoria’s new Digital Salon series. The talks will provide the public with access to the international creatives who are participating in the lab program. Visiting creatives include Canadian Director, Vincent Morisset and American creator Amelia Winger-Bearskin who will both be discussing their award winning work marrying storytelling, immersive technology and interactivity.
Minister for Creative Industries Colin Brooks said: “Congratulations to the teams, including seven Victorians, participating in this year’s Frame Doc Lab. We’re proud to back this program creating cutting-edge new works bringing together art, screen and technology, while boosting Victoria’s reputation as a breeding ground for great storytelling and creative talent.”
State Library Victoria CEO Paul Duldig says, “The Library is delighted to partner with Frame Documentary for a second year to support and inspire new work by innovative documentary storytellers. We are excited to host Frames’ international guests as part of our new Digital Salon series, which launches this month to share with the community how these leading artists are using digital technologies in their practice. Frame’s focus on the creative use of digital technologies elevates future storytelling for all Victorians to enjoy. Through our partnership with Frame, the Library continues to nurture creators, encourages the exploration of new ideas and creates compelling digital experiences to inspire our visitors.”
CEO of VicScreen, Caroline Pitcher said, “Victoria is making its mark as a go-to-destination for ambitious storytelling on screen, and we are proud to support our local talent to continue to push the boundaries and upskill their careers through programs like those led by Frame Documentary. Last year, the projects blew everyone away with their state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge ideas, and we look forward to another brilliant slate of projects in 2024.”
The first Digital Salon featuring Vincent Morisset will take place on Monday 19 February 2024, 6 – 7.30pm at the State Library Victoria.
