Patricia Zimmermann, professor of Screen Studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF), presented a special seminar entitled "Open Space Documentary" for Dartmouth College's journalism program on November 8, 2012.
The seminar explored how new media platforms and transmedia practices featured in the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival have shifted documentary into more collaborative, placed-based, and fluid forms of engagement.
The two-hour interactive seminar was presented via Skype. Seminar participants reviewed the FLEFF new media exhibitions featured online, project websites, and Zimmermann's writing on open space documentary in published essays and on her blog to prepare for the seminar.
