What place do linear, two-dimensional documentaries have in the current media landscape? What is their future? Documentarians of SXSW, together we will seek meaningful answers to these questions as we encourage each other in our most-worthy pursuit. Whether you are now working in, interested in, or have fallen away from traditional docs, come share your experience with other champions of the genre.
