On Saturday, March 27th, at Columbia University, there will be an all-day seminar on Social Media, Digital Distribution and The Future of Film. The Conversation will bring together a group of filmmakers, social media experts and industry execs to continue to explore the new and ever-changing ways we tell cinematic and multi-platform stories, how we can continue to successfully connect with audiences, and, perhaps, how we can make a bit of dough in the process.
In various panel discussions and workshops, co-hosts Scott Kirsner (CinemaTech), Tiffany Shlain (The Tribe) and Lance Weiler (The Workbook Project) will lead talks that address what's of utmost concern to both new and experienced media makers working in the field today. Speakers include Steve Savage of New Video, Fred Seibert of Next New Networks, Cory McAbee of "Stingray Sam," Thomas Woodrow of "Bass Ackwards," and Richard Lorber of Kino Lorber. There should be some spots left, but they're probably going fast; you can register here now to hold a space.
