Sound is sometimes sidelined by the dominance of image and story in documentary making. And yet it can have a powerful effect on the audience, working in a more evocative and subliminal way on our perception of the film. Focussing on documentaries at this year’s festival which immerse the audience in sound, we will explore with their designers how the audio landscape is integral to the cinematic experience.

The Sound is Innocent directed by Johana Ožvold is screening at the festival.
