Between the Lines is more than just three days of films and discussion and will continue the conversation throughout 2013 with a series of follow-up events at cinemas across London.
One for Ten at the Frontline Club Monday 10 June 2013, 7:00 PM BOOK NOW
The death penalty was re-instated in the United States in 1976. Since then, for every ten people that have been executed, one person has been released from death row after spending an average of ten years in isolation. One For Ten is an online documentary series telling the stories of these innocent people.
What the delegates said:
‘Everything about it has been brilliant. Like so many good things, it’s only now that Between the Lines exists, that you wonder why it didn’t before.’
‘Fantastic, inspiring and extremely impressed by the quality of the speakers, organisation and content.’
‘The session ‘Grassroots Surge’ had great, articulated and impassioned speakers. Emily Bell was an excellent Chair. Story Telling In The New Media Landscape was inspiring and energising. A brilliant weekend. Another event like this please!’
‘Great weekend, thank you for organizing this much needed event and discussion.’
‘Blown away by the power of both Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark, and Alma: A Tale of Violence. In particular the latter opened my eyes to a whole new form of interactive online documentary.’
‘A heroic attempt to find a shared language – always valuable and always on incremental but it only takes one or two, as they say!’
‘Great ideas put forward, really exciting. I’m a filmmaker and I already implementing these new emerging ideas into my work. Speakers were all interesting and spoke well.’
‘Very informed discussion and debate across all sessions. Enjoyed discussion around role of social media , online consumption and emerging technologies.’
‘The staff were very welcoming and helpful. All the panels were engaging and highly informative.’
‘They were all very relevant and insightful sessions. Even though I’m primarily interested in docs, the ‘selling out’ panel was very stimulating and engaging. Although I love watching film on the big screen, I attended every session and watched films around them.’
Between the Lines festival flew by this weekend, with heated discussions, enlightening presentations, new perspectives, analysis of the past, visions of the future and some close examination of how we document the world.
Still got questions? We hope so.
Between the Lines is far from over. We’ll be back with follow up events throughout 2013 to continue the conversation.
