How to Attend Panels at Sundance, even if you're not at Sundance
In my morning Shooting People email today, the following info was posted about Zoom In Online - podcast with Geoff Gilmore:
Geoff Gilmore talks about the Sundance Film Festival and what independent film means to him.
Geoffrey Gilmore has been responsible for film selection and overall programming of the annual Sundance Film Festival since 1990. In addition, Gilmore is a programming consultant for the Sundance Film Channel, which was launched in February of 1996. For 14 years, he served as head of the UCLA Film & Television Archive's programming.
More coverage of Sundance 2007:
Panels offered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival will be made publicly available via podcasts for the first time ever through Zoom In Online, the destination and community for creative professionals. In addition to producing the podcasts, Zoom In Online built the platform to deliver festival content in near-real time at festival.sundance.org/2007 and on iTunes
Zoom In Online will offer exclusive daily coverage of the 2007 Sundance Film Festival at www.zoom-in.com. The site will feature daily video blog posts by prominent independent film veteran Reid Rosefelt featuring interviews with filmmakers and celebrated industry veterans, as well as film reviews by Zoom In Online senior editor Annie Young Frisbie. Sponsored by Adobe, Rosefelt’s festival presentation on film marketing will also be available on the site. Along with filmmaker documentaries from the festival, Zoom In Online will continue to post its content after the close of the event as 2007 Sundance Film Festival projects make their theatrical debuts throughout the year.
And another site to check out is Fest Mob in Park City, which was brought to my attention via "Head Trauma" director Lance Weiler:
Are you headed to Park City or are you interested in what's happening? The Fest Mob http://workbookproject.com/mob is a social mobile experiment from the slopes of Park City. Using mobile phones fest goers document their fest experience by texting, photographing and recording vid with their cell phones. Then all the info is uploaded to the fest mob to create a real-time document of the festival. The mob is also a way for people NOT going to Park City to experience the festivals first hand by posting comments, questions or links to cool things they are reading about the festival. It's totally FREE all the details are at http://workbookproject.com/mob The Fest Mob is a social experiment by the Workbook Project a FREE social open source project for filmmakers. Its goal is to bridge the gap between technology and filmmaking. http://workbookproject.com
