Announcing: Future Documentary Sandbox

We're excited to announce full details of Future Documentary, the next REACT Sandbox.

REACT are pleased to announce full details of the Future Documentary Sandbox. REACT Director Jon Dovey says,

"This call sets out to explore how new media delivery systems are disrupting traditional forms of documentary, from radio and TV to theatre, poetry and press. It responds to growing demand from factual producers of all kinds for new ways to engage audiences across a range of emerging platforms. It acknowledges that TV, once the centre of home entertainment, is being displaced by computers, phones and tablet devices.

Sandbox will support six collaborations between creative companies and academic researchers with ground-breaking ideas in this field. Collaborations will be funded for a three month period to develop an innovative prototype and explore its potential impact and business model.

If you have a brilliant idea and a dynamic collaboration, this might be the perfect opportunity to pursue it."

The deadline for applications is 13:00, Friday 12 April 2013. Applicants must also attend a Future Documentary Ideas Lab in either Bristol, Exeter or Cardiff. Full information about Ideas Labs, the theme, the award, and how to apply, can be found on our new Future Documentary Microsite.
