Inside the DIF - 15 July 2020
1 Festival 2 Ways
DIF2020 Live + On Demand
As the DIF2020 Festival moves online this year we have pivoted the program. The DIF2020 Live program will feature a daily calendar of events to engage in over the 2 weeks of the festival. The DIF2020 On Demand program will launch a catalogue of pre-recorded events on the opening day and run for 2 months.
We believe this better responds to our audiences changing viewing habits and reduces pressure on our event partners. In the end it's all about staying connected, sharing ideas, keep on learning and showcasing Victorian digital innovation. The DIFvic Online Events Hub is where you can shortlist events and create your own personalised DIF2020 experience.
There are plenty of opportunities to be part of the DIF2020 Festival with six weeks to go now is the time to get involved. Whether you're a returning or new event host there join this week's DIF Community Call where we will cover the proposed festival schedule, priorities and cross-promotions. Or book a quick 15-min DIF Event Idea Pitch chat or a 30-min DIF Event Deep Dive call with the DIFvic team to run through your ideas and let us know what support you need to successfully be part of this year's DIF2020 Festival.
