Participatory cinema tries to involve a film's community in the process of making movies, rather than interaction being left to cinema viewers at the end of the process. The organizers of participatory cinema open up cinema showings and the cinema production process for non professionals.
Where classic film production focuses on the final product, participatory cinema focuses on the process of making movies and its meaning on the participators.
Participatory documentaries include RiP!: A Remix Manifesto.
Participatory feature films include projects like A Swarm of Angels, Iron Sky or The Cosmonaut.
Participatory film platforms and communities include A Swarm of Angels, Open Source Cinema, The Cosmonaut, Wreck-A-Movie and Write Our Movie.
Famous quotes containing the word cinema:
“Compare ... the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
