Here, Itch Studios will talk about making the feature both creatively and financially. They will also explain how this came about and the idea of using a short to promote their feature alongside a screening of ‘Cherrywood Cannon’.

The role of documentary in the modern news arena.

VICE, the skatepunk fanzine that became famous for it’s stories of sex, drugs and rock and roll now finds itself centre stage in creating and distributing video news content to the world’s youth.

With offices in 37 countries, a generation of fans, content deals with CNN, Bloomburg and The Huffington Post, and a primetime news show for HBO, VICE is producing huge amounts of documentary video for millions of global viewers.

Hosted by VICE producers and editorial staff, “Youth In Revolt” will discuss the role of documentary in telling the stories that matter to young people who, more and more, are shunning the traditional broadcasters. We will also look at the huge quantity of tools for content creation and distribution, as well as discussing the opportunities for independent producers interested in working with us.

For a new generation sick of broadcasting cliches and suspicious of the news establishment, VICE is uniquely positioned as a truly modern news source.
