Media Speed Dating: Filmmakers Digital Hackathon

If you could set up two industries on a date (that would inevitably lead to marriage, babies and happily ever after) what would those two industries be?

We have a hunch that introducing filmmakers and tech geeks to one another could lead to the start of beautiful relationships.

This session will seek to fuse independent filmmakers and tech savvy developers together for three days of brainstorming, designing and developing technical solutions to independent filmmakers' most pressing problems.

You're cordially invited to the union of film and digital, guaranteed to lead to a happy ending.
