You may want to bookmark tribecafilm.com, since it has launched a month of online conversation around the upcoming documentary release Side By Side. Each day a new exclusive clip will post from one of the film's prognosticators that couldn't be squeezed into the final cut of the doc. The clips will offer a daily opportunity to follow the debate on the digital revolution that is portrayed in this seminal film. You can find all the clips compiled on the Tribeca Film 'Side Swipes' page.
The film Side By Side, produced by Keanu Reeves and directed by Chris Kenneally, explores the complex and divisive conversation currently taking place around the transition from traditional filmmaking to the new digital revolution. Keanu Reeves asks the question, "Will film survive?" He takes the audience on a tour of the past and the future of filmmaking. Since the invention of cinema, the standard format for recording moving images has been film. Over the past two decades, a new form of digital filmmaking has emerged, creating a groundbreaking evolution in the medium. Reeves explores the development of cinema and the impact of digital filmmaking via in-depth interviews with Hollywood masters such as James Cameron, David Fincher, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Steven Soderbergh, and many more.
With such a contentious subject, everyone had a lot to say. The convo will continue on tribecafilm.com—home to the Future of Film blog, a platform that explores the changing industry on a weekly basis—as well as across social media all month.
