On May 3rd, 2012, Austin Film Society will be hosting a special moviemaker dialogue panel featuring three local filmmakers who will the rise of streaming internet video, as well as their experiences with digital distribution. I am particularly excited that award-winning documentary producer Brady Dial will be on the panel.
Man on a Mission, Dial’s documentary following gaming millionaire Richard Garriott pioneering private space travel in a quest to become the first second-generation astronaut, won Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2009 SXSW Film Festival.
If you are interested in the future of digital video distribution and its impact on filmmaking, this AFS event is right up your alley:
Distribution continues to be an evolving beast. With the advent of streaming Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant and cable VOD, there are so many new options for audiences to access movies. We’ve invited three filmmakers who have gone down the digital distribution rabbit hole and are ready to discuss the experience.
Join us and panelists John Bryant (THE OVERBROOK BROTHERS), Bob Byington (SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME), and Brady Dial (MAN ON A MISSION) on Thursday May 3rd at 7 PM at the AFS Screening Room at Austin Studios (1910 E 51st St).
