THE STATE OF THE STORY


Date: Feb. 13 (6:30 PM - 8:30 PM)

Location: New York Foundation for the Arts, 20 Jay Street, Suite 740, Brooklyn, NY 11201

When Megan Cunningham’s Magnet Media researched global trends for their report, "The State of the Story," they found that successful producers were embracing new tools and techniques such as podcasts, purpose-driven narratives, and influencer collaboration to expand their reach and improve engagement. A new frontier of cross-platform storytelling was emerging that was more social, more mobile, more visual, and more authentically true to the filmmakers who were creating it. Cunningham will discuss these developments and what they mean for independent filmmaking.
