The education market for documentary film: Digital shifts in an age of content abundance

Elkington, Ruari B. (2016) The education market for documentary film: Digital shifts in an age of content abundance. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research examines the education market for documentary film at a time of digitally mediated content abundance. How can an expanded acknowledgment of cineliteracy within the education market for screen content contribute to sustainability of the Australian documentary sector through improved distribution and educational outreach practices? Engaging with international case studies of film festivals, foundations and charities both in the UK and US allows for observations around best practice to be considered for a local context.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
