Marc Bragdon, Librarian, UNB and Casey Burkholder, PhD candidate, McGill

This workshop will explore film as both an adjunct to traditional instruction methods and, in the form of cellphilms, an alternative modality for student projects and knowledge mobilization.  Cellphilms (cellphones + films) are videos made on a cellphone, and are easily disseminated from cellphone-to-cellphone, screened in classrooms and at community events, and/or uploaded onto social media. In this workshop, our objectives are to introduce cellphilm method drawing on our own experiences with the method and to interrogate and deepen understandings about the contributions and limitations of integrating cellphones into participatory filmmaking.

THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF DOCUMENTARY FILM

Dr. Scott Preston, Assistant Professor, UNB

This workshop will introduce researchers to the history and evolution of the documentary as a form, from its beginnings up to today. We will consider what distinguishes a documentary from other kinds of film and video productions, and how the documentary is expanded by new digital media. Finally, we will consider in particular the different ways that academic researchers have participated in the making of documentaries throughout its history and into the present. I hope this will inspire some of you to consider using this form to disseminate your own research.
