I am delighted to say that I'll be speaking at the New York Film Festival's Convergence event this year! My talk is titled "You're Such A Character: New Roles for Audiences in Storytelling," and it will take place at 11:30am on Sunday, September 30. I believe it will be in the Amphitheater at Film Society of Lincoln Center, but please double-check the details before you go, as it is possible I've confused something.
Passes to the Convergence track are available for $150 (or $125 if you're a member of the Film Society.) But if that's a little rich for your blood, you can also get tickets to just my thing for $16.50/$11.50.
I'm really looking forward to this talk -- I'll be airing some new thinky thoughts about point of view, audience participation, and role assignment. And of course I would love to see some familiar faces in the crowd! Spread the word, and hope to see you there!
