Stories are no longer solely powered by author and reader imagination. New technologies are allowing for stories to evolve into new platforms, reaching extended audiences. This is resulting in new individual and shared experiences, and important learnings about others’ histories and perspectives, enhancing the impact of the original stories. Learn about which new technologies can help to drive your narratives and characters forward, as experts in immersive storytelling and AI share their insights.


Presented by Telefilm Canada, in partnership with the Canada Media Fund, the National Film Board of Canada, Creative BC and Ontario Creates, with the support of the Government of Canada.
