1-2pm. Zoom Films: Stopgap or new art form? A lunchtime conversation via Zoom with Disabled filmmakers about the long-term potential of filmmaking over Zoom. Is it just a way for people to get together when forced into isolation, or is it a way of connecting filmmakers across the world to create a new hybrid art-form combining radio, film and animation?
