Not so long ago, the film industry meant filmmaking in Hollywood. Although Hollywood films still dominate the global marketplace, the majority of feature films made are produced outside of the U.S. There is also a marked increase in the global reach of American films, including independents, which are being marketed digitally to be viewed by audiences throughout the world. This global film perspective brings into play questions of the challenges of working, communicating, and marketing across cultures, while often showcasing aspects of cultures that audiences are not used to seeing represented on film. This panel will cover the ways films are financed, produced and distributed around the world. Special attention will be devoted to the role film festivals play in the globalization of this multi-billion dollar international art-and-entertainment business.
