Put your neighbourhood on the map

This is a fun initiative for those of you who want to create a short interactive story with the NFB.

CBC is inviting Canadians to put their stories on the map by submitting their own pieces to the Canada Writes Digital Storytelling Challenge. The winner will have his/her own story of local change turned into an interactive project by the NFB Digital Studio.

Five stories have already been created. You can view them here.


POV Hackathon 2 and FWA People’s Choice Award 2012

It’s always interesting and enlightening to see and explore what other nonfiction artists are up to.

This weekend (Jan. 12 and 13) 8 teams of filmmakers and developers will meet in Brooklyn as part of the POV Hackathon 2 to come up with new ideas on how to make a web documentary, whether it be an app, an interactive website or a game.

Also, this weekend is your last opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Awards. The winners will be announced by the FWA on Jan. 15.

There are many cool websites included in that list – try Jam With Chrome – and also 3 webdocumentaries :

Bear 71, D-Day to Victory, and Clouds over Cuba.

Three very different, but powerful examples of interactive storytelling.

Keep exploring!
