HISTORY INSIDE/OUT


History is brought to the forefront, for in these amnesia-esque times, remembering the past could not be more relevant to invite audiences to seek new meaning in the present world.

The 2020 edition of Sunny Side of the Doc will shine a light on the imminent opportunities of historytelling which tirelessly questions the collective memory, explores the hybrid trends of the genre, introduces new narrative forms, extends the use of archival materials, and is still of interest to international broadcasters, SVOD platforms and distributors.

In the new media landscape, this focus is thought inside & out, reframing history and encouraging convergence around valuable exchange of ideas, talents, co-productions, digital experiences, technical solutions and the most innovative documentary projects in development.
