Non-Fiction Journal


Non-Fiction is a journal from Open City Documentary Festival. The publication was launched in 2020 with the aim to create a space for considered, critical and creative writing on non-fiction, featuring contributions offered in response to moving image, audio or cross-media, both contemporary and historical. The first two issues (#1 Power and #2 Network) were edited by Matt Turner and published in print form. In 2021, Non-Fiction moved online in order to be more widely accessible. We aim to publish two issues a year, each edited by a different guest editor.

Non-Fiction #3 The Living Journal is edited by Olivier Marboeuf and Ana Vaz and was published in September 2021.

Non-Fiction #4 Peculiar Forms is edited by Aily Nash.

Non-Fiction #5 The Obsolete and The Resurrected is edited by Pan Lu and Bo Wang.

Non-Fiction #6 Inscriptions is edited by Henrietta Williams as a collaboration between Open City Documentary Festival.
