From Crowdfunding to Social Media to Distribution: Leveraging Emerging Digital Platforms and Technologies

Free!

90 min.

Whether talking about the first dollar raised or the last seat filled during a “theatrical run,” the trajectory of an independent film looks quite different than it did 20, ten, or even five years ago. Digitization has knocked down the barriers between filmmakers and audiences, and the effect can be seen from production to the festival circuit to distribution. Frameline’s panel will contextualize the new model within the history of queer film and look to the future path being forged. Please join us for this exploration of the role of emerging digital technologies and how they impact filmmakers, audiences, and industry professionals.
