Dag Tid Sted
Tuesday 17. January 12:00 Clarion Hotel The Edge

Some say that we´ve entered into the Experience Age of media and if so, what does it mean? With the rapid rise of new technologies in the form of VR/AR, the artful promise of immersive films and the ever-shifting waves of micro-content we share and consume on social media - all signs are pointing towards a media landscape that puts the viewer front and center to the experience. 

Film 2.0 invites you to explore these fascinating new waves, formats and ideas with guest speakers who have dared to venture into these new territories. What can we learn from their experience and how will these change the way we tell our stories?

Welcome speech by the Director for Innovation Norway Arctic, Linda Beate Randal.
