Sprat bar, 8. november @ 7 p.m.
PARTICIPANTS: Divna Vuksanović (Serbia), Ana Martinoli (Serbia), Mia Biberović (Croatia), Vladimir Radinović (Serbia)

Free Zone Film Festival, with the cooperation and partnership of the Multimedia Institute Mi2 MaMa from Zagreb, is organizing a regional conference Podcast: Web Phenomenon – One Man Multiple Media as part of this year’s accompanying program.

It has been seventeen years since Ben Hammersley published the article The Sound Revolution in the Guardian in which he first used a therm podcast. From that moment until today, listening to podcasts has shown that over the years it has slowly but surely become part of the regular habits of one part of the media audience, and its popularity has grown steadily, from year to year. Over time, it became clear that the podcast created a new “audiosphere” and began to mean much more than just the way audio content was delivered.

Conference participants Podcast: web phenomenon – One Man Multiple Media will consider the dual nature of this phenomenon, the emancipatory potential of this independent audio project in which professionals and amateurs take the initiative and their participation democratize and transform the public and media sphere, while on the other hand to observe the potential consequences for a democratic society by developing a media format that does not have a “democratic censor” and is open to the voices of all, including populists, who potentially disrupt democratic values ​​and processes.
