New Storytelling with Canadian Broadcasters

Storytellers are blurring the lines between traditional television and new forms of fiction and Canadian broadcasters are embracing the opportunities - as second screen convergent experiences, standalone web series and into games. For example, in Quebec, the Canada Media Fund and The Bell Fund support media projects that are attracting new audiences to traditional public broadcasting and institutions like Radio-Canada and ONF/NFB.

In this session we will explore how storytelling crosses platforms. We will propose case studies of projects such as Le Judas, Zieuter and United-States of Africa. These media projects challenge and redefine the boundaries of traditional fiction, documentary, ARG and online games. We will showcase how interactive strategies increase user engagement and extend viewing with audience interaction on multiple platforms.
