This Saturday, I’ll be speaking on a panel at the Big Apple Film Festival, called Distribution in the New Age. The others on the panel are:
Aaron Levine (moderator), Film Division Manager at Gen Art
Peter Goldwyn, Vice President Acquisitions Samuel Goldwyn Films
Clémence Taillandier, Head of Theatrical Sales, Zeitgeist Films
Date: Saturday, November 17, 2007
Time: Saturday, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Tribeca Cinemas
Address: 54 Varick Street, New York, NY
I’m looking forward to this panel, because it’s a new batch of panelists for me, different from the usual suspects at Vancouver, IFP Market and London. We’ll be discussing some of the same topics as past panels: on-demand theatrical booking, content discovery, the up-scaling of the theatrical experience. But the added perspective of the bigger-budget, older-school Goldwyn and Zeitgeist representatives should be interesting, and if we’re very, very lucky, maybe we’ll see another showdown. Aaron will also ask us about how the writers strike ties into Internet distribution. One of the greatest consequences of Internet distribution is a shift in power, so we should have a lot to talk about.
A little help?
Would anybody be willing to volunteer to shoot the panel so we can get it up on the web? Thanks.
Update: I posted the video of the full panel.
