     * The role of the documentary filmmaker in multimedia production
     * Designing the documentary: Does the 'deco doc' mean a further
     retreat from truth and reality
     * The observational film - is it time the fly-on-the-wall was swatted?
     * Women documentary filmmakers - in the 70s women and the documentary
     went together like a horse and carriage.  Do they still present a
     different perspective?
     * Video diaries: home movies
     * Visual anthropology; imperialism, colonialism and the post-colonial
     * Infotainment - death to documentary?
     * Whose voice is it anyway? An examination of point of view and the
     function of the narrator

     "fiction" is consciously blurred

     documentary festivals and conferences (Melbourne, Sheffield,
