Abstract

Interactive digital media have greatly affected the logics of production, exhibition and reception of non-fiction audiovisual works, leading to the emergence of a new area called "interactive non-fiction". One of its key points is that it can deal with factual material in such a way that it influences and transforms the real world around us. The present work gives a brief insight into the interactive non-fiction area and presents some trends/hypotheses obtained from studying one of its main formats: interactive documentary. The aim is to introduce new dynamics, logics and trends that could shape the interactive non-fiction field in forthcoming years.
