FLEFF: A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT

Patricia Zimmermann, FLEFF Director, and Ann Michel, FLEFF Producer, on Virtual Festivals

As part of the special Visible Evidence Forum dossier on Cocreation During Pandemic and Protest, Zimmermann and Michel published an essay about innovations in collaborative cocreative practices as FLEFF 2021 went 100% Virtual . This cutting-edge dossier features essays by eight scholars and new media artists, many of whom had been previous FLEFF guests.
