Future of Film Talks: Tribeca Film Festival

Friday, April 6th, 2012 by

Every year at Tribeca, the festival aims to add new events and series to the mix, expanding the conversation into new areas and topics. For Tribeca Film Festival 2012, one of these additions is the Future of Film Lunch Series: daily talks and presentations related to platforms, technology, and trends that are changing the art and business of film.

Thought leaders spanning the worlds of film, media, technology and society will each speak for 30 minutes, followed by an audience Q&A. Every day, from April 23-26, there will be two presentations spanning the 12:00 to 1:30 time block, and the entire series is free and open to the public. The hosts at 92YTribeca have a fabulous café, so grab your lunch and join them each day for these lively conversations. If you can’t make it downtown, watch daily video highlights on TribecaFilm.com.

Notable speakers include PARANORMAL ACTIVITY producer Jason Blum, Tumblr founder David Karp, College Humor and Vimeo founder Ricky Van Veen, and more.

“Our Future of Film blog has been an important tool in nurturing a steady, year-round dialogue on the changes in our industry. As we continue to drive this conversation year round and grow the community of contributors, our Future of Film speaker series is a great platform to hear from industry pros who are experiencing the changes first hand,” said Matt Spangler, Tribeca Enterprises, EVP Marketing and Content. “The live event and video content created by this terrific lineup of speakers will offer unique perspectives for our audience on where film is headed.”

The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 18, 2012 – April 29, 2012. For more information visit the festival webpage.
