Cinema on the Move: New Mobile Technologies and the Next Wave of Filmmaking

The consumer fascination with cellular “ringtones” set the stage for the current explosion of mobile content delivery all around us, and the promise of a new outlet for filmmaking. Suddenly video iPods, Sony PlayStations, lap top computers, PDAs, and cellular phones seem like interactive movie screens in our hands, prompting a new rush for bite-sized content. Will this become a new outlet for film shorts, audio downloads, edgy animation, and otherwise obscure content; and will it destabilize distribution as we know it? Are “mobile feature films” on the horizon? What will viewers really want to see on those tiny screens? Is this the beginning of a trend? Join today’s industry experts, entrepreneurs, and filmmakers in a dynamic conversation of what mobile technology will mean to our industry, and our attention spans. Moderated by Walt Mossberg, Personal Technology Columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
