SoCal: The Future of Cinema, Aug 6th

How far can movies travel on the superfast freeway of technological wizardry? And how do we differentiate between hype, trends, and what is actually possible? What solutions, innovations, and probing of new frontiers are in the pipeline?

GABA has assembled a great panel of experts who will share their thoughts and real-life tech stories about what is real, what to expect in the near future, and how they write a happy-marriage scenario between movies and technology.

The conversation will highlight balancing storytelling and technology, festivals as launch pads, how indies and arthouse keep our industry in check and contribute to its health and longevity, and perspective from the audience.

Networking brunch after the panel – cash bar & food
