Documentary Activism. In a world that is increasingly dominated by corporate politics the medium of film is becoming more established in the hands of the public who are using these visual storytelling tools to give voice to the people and speak for true democracy. Documentaries have the power to inform, motivate and engage. Documentaries can initiate social change by encapsulating essential truths within emotive and logical discourse. In this seminar James Muir presents his experience with community provocation and engagement through the International Award winning film River Dog. This seminar covers the theories and practices that inform would-be documentary activists and the practical steps that are required in order to successfully establish your film as an essential motivator for change.

James Muir is an artist, photographer, teacher and now a filmmaker with a passion for telling unique New Zealand stories, seeking to find better ways in which emotive and empathic connections can be made between art and the audience. James’ first short film, River Dog has now been officially selected for 13 International Film Festivals and won 7 international awards.

Admission to seminar is $5 or free with a ticket to 6pm film screening following seminar.
