Scott Kirsner, Lance Weiler, Tiffany Shlain and others put together a great program at Pacific Film Archives this past weekend, bringing together folks from the tech, social entrepreneur, and film worlds. There was a lot of great stuff on the new world of DIY/Hybrid Distribution. I imagine Lance will post a lot of it over at The Workbook Project.
On changing Festival world, Variety has an article on how the financial crisis has effected film festivals. Worth checking out.
