Stay-at-Home Movies: The Home Theatre Experience and the Future of Exhibition

In an age where cinema attendance is dropping, the personal consumer playgrounds of Hi-Def plasma screens, personal digital recorders, internet protocol narrowcasts, and interactive gaming have become more exciting than ever. More and more, it can be argued that both the creative and economic future of filmmaking lies “at home and in the living room,” not at the Cineplex. Join distributors, filmmakers, and technology experts alike as we turn playgrounds into battlefields for the debates surrounding new HD formats, internet distribution, and the role of broad-based and niche content in today’s marketplace. What will the world look like when the internet and the television become one and the same? Where will independents fit into in the mix and how can they access the consumer market directly? Moderated by William Alpert, senior editor of Barron’s magazine and writer of the “Tech Trader” column.

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.
