The OpenDocLab team will be presenting “The Magic of MIT” at the Sundance Film Festival in a New Frontier panel on Sunday, January 20 at noon. Get ready for an overview of the interactive field from OpenDocLab Director Sarah Wolozin, a preview of the inspiring work of MIT’s Center for Civic Media, and some exciting MIT Media Lab demos courtesy of the Object-Based Media research group.

According to the panel description,

When you think about the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, filmmaking, civic activism, and cultural criticism are probably not what come to mind. A visiting crew of MIT professors and students present some of their story-oriented and story-enabling work. This panel is moderated by Kamal Sinclair, senior manager of the New Frontier Story Lab, and features projects from the Object-Based Media Group and the Open Documentary Lab.

Hope to see you there! For those interested in following remotely, keep an eye on the hashtag #MagicMIT.
