SXSW and ShoWest

Heading out on Sunday to a double-header of events... first, Austin's South by Southwest, to moderate a panel on the impact that blogging is having on the world of film (Monday, March 13 at 3 PM), and then to ShoWest in Vegas for a bunch of interviews, panels, and screenings.


Here's our panel for SXSW:


How can blogs help filmmakers get their movies made, and build an audience for the finished product? How can they help fans get better information about the movies and directors they care about? Are blogs more or less credible than 'traditional' media, and can bloggers make money doing by doing it? Some of the film world's most-clicked bloggers plan to give you the inside scoop about how this new form of journalism is evolving.


Moderator: Scott Kirsner Editor, CinemaTech

Panelists:

Karina Longworth Editor, Cinematical

David Hudson Editor, GreenCine

David Poland Publisher/Editor, Movie City News

Cynthia Greening Sr Editor Independent Film, Cinema Minima

Joe Swanberg, Director, "LOL"

Doug Block, Director, "51 Birch Street"


I suspect at least one of these people will blog about the panel, for those of you who can't make it...
