Power to the Pixel’s Cross-Media Forum will be held in association with The Times BFI London Film Festival tomorrow, October 14.

The programme includes a number of presentations by leading digital pioneers, including creators, promoters, distributors, and financiers – including Ted Hope, Christy Dena, Karol Martesko-Fenster, Scilla Andreen, Efe Cakarel, Brian Newman and others.

The discussion will cover topics such as the history and progression of storytelling, the evolution of cross-media, innovative distribution models, and the role of internet in digital distribution.

The forum will also look at the changing nature of distribution through a series of case studies. Film-maker Franny Armstrong and producer Lizzie Gillet will discuss the global release campaign for The Age Of Stupid, while film-maker Nina Paley makes the case for free distribution through her musical animation Sita Sings the Blues.

The forum will wrap with a discussion on the demise of traditional financing and the future of cross-media business models. The issue will be presented by digital media director Peter Cowley of Endmol UK and Ben Grass from Pure Grass Films.

ScreenDaily will host a live webcast of the conference from 9.30am tomorrow morning.
