AUGUST 23th/24th/25th 2013
Ancient town of Pentedattilo
Director of Programming and Special Projects at the USC School of Cinematic Arts
The discussion will focus on current trends in the entertainment industry, including the rise of transmedia and interactive storytelling (content for mobile media like iPads & tablets), new technologies, changes in distribution platforms (Netflix), successes and failures of recent ‘tentpole’ films (The Avengers vs. The Lone Ranger), mergers & acquisitions (Disney absorbing Marvel Studios), and innovations in exhibition and home entertainment. The seminar will broadly analyze the business of entertainment, new financing models and ‘crowdfunding’ (Kickstarter), viral marketing, and genre cycles (superhero films). By examining key films from the past few years, the seminar will attempt to shed light on why certain films are made and why some don’t meet fiscal or critical expectations.
Entries close on August 19th, limited enrollment. Hurry up! Book your spot by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org The fee will be required just if selected.
The festival is not only vision but also participation, sharing and growth.
