 About ICFST 2019

International Conference on ‘The Future of Storytelling-Global & Multidisciplinary Emergence’ (ICFST 2019) builds on the global insights as to show how a story is used by media & entertainment industry professionals.

Over the course of two days, you will engage in a mix of deep learning through plenary sessions, panel discussions & paper presentations. This will leave you with a thorough understanding of the digital media ecosystem as well as the expertise you’ll need to communicate strategically within it.

The emerging field of experiential art, comprised of physical experiences such as live performance and immersive theatre, and experiences through a digital interface is ushering in an entirely new realm of storytelling. In some ways, the impact of technology dominating our lives has created a renewed focus on creating experiences that enable people to feel connected to the real-world, with human, tactile connections becoming most valued.

At the same time, these past few years has also shown us the potential of crossovers between disciplines—that technology can mindfully be built into live performances and elevate those experiences to a whole new level. This conversation will explore what it means to create a story world, design for presence, and craft compelling narrative experiences that capture the audience’s imagination with a new perception of reality.
