Art House Convergence Closing Keynote Address

I had the honor of being asked to give a closing key note at the Art House Convergence today in Salt Lake City. I have to admit, it was really inspiring and informative to hear it from the exhibitors’ perspective. And they really wanted to hear from us too, and where we thought that it was all headed. Well, I had a few thoughts, so it was nice to be able to offer them. This is my address to the exhibitors.

based on creator-controlled content and an ongoing dialogue with the audience. This affects all of us: filmmakers, exhibitors, distributors, and film lovers.
