A short version of Liz Rosenthal's lecture during TorinoFilmLab, hosted by BoostHbg with support from Film i Skåne.
Before the Internet and digitisation, the ways that stories were told, delivered and shared were restricted by running times, distribution formats and platforms. The impact of new technologies coupled with an audience that has way more control over their media than ever before is impacting on the art, craft and business of storytelling.
An early advocate and pioneer of cross-media, digital distribution and filmmaking, Liz is a digital film and media expert. She is Founder and CEO of Power the Pixel. Liz has advised many international media organisations including the UK Film Council, where she was Digital Strategy Advisor, and is regularly invited to speak at international conferences and film festivals, including Berlin, Cannes, Rotterdam, London, Edinburgh, TEDx transmedia. She was the Programme Director of Digimart - The Global Digital Distribution Summit in Montreal, founder of production company Earthly Delights Films, and set up and ran the UK office for Next Wave Films from 1998 to 2002, pioneer in the production, finance and sales of low budget features and digital filmmaking.
