TALKING 'BOUT OUR GENERATION 


New models, new forms of storytelling, convergence, how we will make money, how we will make art -- being an independent filmmaker or investor or producer right now is all about talking. Being part of the dialogue. Taking part in the conversation. Appropriately, then, Scott Kirsner of the CinemaTech blog, Ken Goldberg, Tiffany Shlain and Lance Weiler are co-hosting The Conversation/The Future of Cinema, Games and Online Video: New Tools/New Distribution/New Rules at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, California on October 17 and 18th.

The official spam:

This October, pioneers at the forefront of change in cinema, video, games, media and technology are coming together to share ideas, insights, and innovations. Our focus is on new tools, new distribution channels, and new rules.
The format of the gathering will be experimental: rather than a traditional conference, short talks and demos, "fireside chats," and roundtables will spark a dynamic series of overlapping conversations.

All this will happen at UC Berkeley's renowned Pacific Film Archive theater over two days this October. It's a conversation that will bring together media-makers and technologists to share experiences, discuss, debate, and map out the future together.


You can check out the dense and really interesting schedule, which features people from Dreamworks SKG, JibJab, Lucasfilm, YouTube, ITVS and many other organizations. There will also be some faces familiar to Filmmaker readers, like Weiler, Arin Crumley, and M. Dot Strange. If you live in San Francisco or are able to make it there, I highly recommend that you register and attend. To help you out, Kirsner has very generously offered a special discount for Filmmaker readers. Click on the link and enroll before it sells out.
