Panel: Independent Film Festival Boston

On Sunday, April 26, 2009, I will be speaking at a panel at Independent Film Festival Boston on digital strategies for building and communicating with your audience. I hope to reveal some of the tools I’ve been working on over the past year.

I’m looking forward to attending IFFB for the first time. I’ve heard great things about the festival, since Four Eyed Monsters played there in 2005, and the festival’s Program Director Adam Roffman managed the very successful Boston release of the film in 2006.

Here are the Details: Sunday, April 26, 2009 @ 12:00 pm Somerville Theatre 55 Davis Sq Somerville, MA 02144 (617) 625-5700 map

The other panelists are:

  1. Scott Kirsner (moderator) is a journalist and all-around smart guy. He’s the author of two books, Inventing the Movies, which I frequently cite as a defining analysis of how the film industry falls behind on innovation, and Fans, Friends & Followers, an excellent collection of interviews with artists who build their own audiences and distribute their own work. He also writes the blog Cinematech.

  2. Chris Holland Director of Festival Operations at B-Side and author of Film Festival Secrets.

  3. Sean Flynn producer and cinematographer at Principle Pictures.

Update: I recorded and posted the entire panel here.
