DocWeek will feature a greater screening program, exhibitions, parties, conversations and the renowned Australian International Documentary Conference will coincide from 4-7th March.
A Documentary highlight will be a retrospective of the works with one of the most important documentary filmmakers of the moment, Alex Gibney known for his gripping, deeply insightful documentaries.

It was also announced that American Award-winning filmmaker Marshall Curry will attend DocWeek with his partner and producer Elizabeth Martin and the strand called 'The View From Here' will feature 3 of his films followed by Q & A s with the filmmakers present.

In this category Blush of Fruit by filmmaker Jakub Anov will screen. Blush of Fruit recently screened during the Adelaide Film Festival where is received the documentary award. We will give it another outing.
'The Last Impresario', by filmmaker Gracie Otto will officially open DocWeek with its Australian premiere of her full length directorial debut. The Last Impresario is a portrait of larger than life theatre and film producer, Michael White. He was the driving force behind the success of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, Monty Python, Barry Humphries and many others. The Last Impresario will share the opening slot with the long anticipated film by Alex Gibney, The Armstrong Lie, about cyclist Lance Armstrong.
'From the Bottom of the Lake', by debutante Clare Young will close DocWeek and is a close up and intimate portrait of Jane Campion's creative process. Clare follows Jane and her co-writer Gerard Lee as they create the critically acclaimed series 'Top of the Lake' from note book to Golden Globe.
'Kick Out The Jams' is a series of 5 Documentary films exploring Detroit, Michigan. Each film shows a different perspective on the plight of the motor city. The series is named after the famous song by Detroit band the MC5. The five films combined will give a comprehensive insight into the sociology and creative environment of a city that has lost its primary economy.
A free screening program called 'Hometown Adelaide' will be screened at the State Library of South Australia with the focus on Adelaide. Archival films supplied by the National Film and Sound Archive will be shown and new short films by Adelaide based filmmakers about Adelaide artists will screen. At the centre of this program is the daily episode of Gillian Armstrong's The Story of Josie, Diana and Kerry - three local girls from Adelaide who Armstrong has been following since the 70's. 'Home Town: Adelaide' starts every night at 6:30 and is free. The last night is dedicated to Visionary Adelaide, a panel discussion led by ABC 891 Mornings presenter Ian Henschke. In the discussion urban development experts take full advantage of the lessons Gillian Armstrong's long term study of Adelaide and its suburbs has given us, and make predictions for the city's future.
DocWeek Interactive is a new program to be held at the City Library offering a user-driven space where you can interact with the world's best interactive documentaries.
DocWeek 2014 officially kicks off on Wednesday the 19th of February with Night Lab, a collaboration between the South Australia Museum and DocWeek. Night Lab follows the drives and experiences of those exploring the harshest and most remote places on earth.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
