A number of panels and interviews from last week’s IFP Filmmaker Conference have surfaced online. The following is a collection of media and links.

Scott Kirsner from CinemaTech talks with Brett Gaylor, a Montreal-based filmmaker who is exploring new ways that large groups can collaborate on documentaries. Shot at the 2007 IFP Filmmaker Conference in New York.


The Four Eyed Monsters team recorded a panel on Viewer Habits with Andrew Barron (Rocket Boom), Brett Gaylor (Opensourcecinema.org), Arin Crumley and Susan Buice from FEM that I moderated.

IFP has set up a myspace profile containing a number of interviews from the Conference – this is one with Indie Producer Gill Holland.

Joel Heller over at Docs That Inspire (a great doc resource) recorded the Digital Download panel featuring Peter Broderick (Distribution Strategist at Paradigm Consulting), Kathleen Powell (Vice President, Worldwide Programming, Jaman), Jana Augsberger (Filmaka.com), and Kelly Devine (Manager, ReFrame Project). You can read more about this panel—along with Kirsner’s commentary on several other IFP panels—at his blog: CinemaTech. To listen click here.

  • Event Screenings & Alternate Releasing
    Ordinarily, I don’t like speculative posts. At times I find them even counter-productive, because they can often wind people up with pie-in-the-sky “what-ifs,” but provide no real actionable items. So that’s not my intent here. Here I just wanted to throw out some ideas for viewing/releasing a film, and see what others think about them. What are the issues with… read more
