Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson discuss the changing face of the film industry with a live audience at the SXSW Film Festival.
Anne Thompson and Eric Kohn at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival
The film industry is changing on a regular basis. If you make movies and don’t know your way through a Kickstarter campaign or the best way to submit to a film festival online, you may be restricting your potential to develop a career. At the SXSW Film Festival
, countless panels provided the opportunity to delve into these issues. But they weren’t the only events taking place at a gathering loaded with conversations about virtual reality, television, web series and so much more. In an age of increased media fragmentation, how will the movies survive? That was one of the bigger themes during last week’s live recording of Screen Talk at SXSW, where Indiewire’s Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson engaged with an audience of regular listeners eager to discuss the future of entertainment. Special thanks to SXSW programmer Jarod Neece for providing the introduction to this episode.
