Conference

interDocsBarcelona Conference

This year we are launching the third edition of interDocsBarcelona, the interactive and transmedia section of DocsBarcelona.

In this year’s edition we will be accompanied by top class international guests and we will also have a first row of experts who will join the discussion and debate after each speaker’s contribution.

This year we wish to focus on disseminating and reflecting on projects with a strong social element, with the potential to transform individuals, communities and society as a whole. We believe that this new family of documentaries have a lot to say regarding social change and activism in our time, and that’s why we want to provide an outlet for them to be seen and generate debate at interDocsBarcelona.
