[The Conversation: At the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, CA, October 17-18, 2008]

Goal Team Schedule Blog Venue Registration Sponsors Contact Participants

Quote mark In March, pioneers at the forefront of change in cinema, video, digital media and technology are gathering again to share ideas, insights, and innovations. Our focus for this second edition of The Conversation are the opportunities created by social media, the Web, digital distribution, and an increasingly engaged audience.

(Note: the 2010 edition of The Conversation was sold out... but video from the event is available here, and notes, pics and other wrap-up info are here.)

Rather than sitting through a standard conference, you'll be part of a dynamic series of overlapping conversations -- some led by the speakers and moderators on the agenda, some shaped by you.

All this takes place on the uptown Manhattan campus of Columbia University on one jam-packed day: Saturday, March 27th. It's a day that will bring together media-makers, techies, and social media strategists to share experiences and advice, map out the future together, and ideally begin some lasting collaborations.

The schedule for the day is here, along with a call for your ideas about speakers and topics. The blog is here, with regularly-updated info, as well as photos, video, and reflections from the 2008 gathering at Berkeley's Pacific Film Archive.

If you'd like to be on the list for future gatherings, please drop us a note...
