I moderated a Tribeca Talks Panel discussion on “Making a Difference with Immersive Non-Fiction Stories” that on Sunday, June 12, 2022 where we focused on the structure and forms of immersive storytelling, and then reflected on the challenges and opportunities for creating and distribute immersive stories for social good.
