Online Film Festivals

Digital technologies and the Internet are affecting every aspect of film production, distribution, marketing, and consumption and have spawned the online film festival.

Tribeca’s Geoffrey Gilmore, in the new Future of Film blog, explains why this year they are capping the overall number of people that will actually be able to see the film, “just like in a regular screening that has a specific amount of seats.” “The online screenings become capped promotional screenings, which is essentially what a film festival screening is in every other way. When the online audience becomes more selective about what they want to see, this helps the filmmaker showcase the film to the right audience.”
