Emmy-winning filmmaker Katerina Cizek is working on the frontline of the digital revolution. On February 17, 2015, Cizek will use her critically acclaimed National Film Board Project HIGHRISE as a case study to discuss web documentaries and interactive storytelling, and offer concrete advice on how to take digital docs from conceptualization to execution. Point of View Magazine is a proud Media Sponsor of this DOC Institute Masters Series.

HIGHRISE explores “vertical living in the global suburbs” and since its launch in 2009 has gone on to earn a Canadian Screen Award, an International Digital Emmy for Non-Fiction, and the Inaugural IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling. The Master Class will also include a sneak preview of Cizek’s third and final instalment of the NFB HIGHRISE project.
