Women in Film – New Media Day

February 24, 2009 at 2:25 pm 4 comments


March 4th (Wednesday) is New Media Day at the Women in Film Festival – and the forum has a fantastic line-up of speakers.   I strongly suggest you attend if you’re interested in film and social media.

Bridget O’Neill, a charismatic actress & online personality, will be there –

– along with these other bright, accomplished speakers: Dennis Chenard, Catherine Warren (of FanTrust Entertainment Strategies), Daniella Sorrentino, Danika Dinsmore, Carol Sill, Gillian Shaw, Erica Hargreave, Thecla Schiphorst, Jean Hebert, James Eberhardt (of Echo Mobile), Shannon McKarney, Jennifer Ouano, Bradley Shende, Maura Rodgers, Amielle Lake, Rochelle Grayson and Tracey Friesen (of the NFB))

Oh and – I’ll be there too 🙂 – on the “Social Media How To” panel:

Characters’ are becoming quite popular on social media platforms. They can help tell the story, allow for audience interaction, create ‘buzz’, and keep your fans talking. There are right and wrong ways to do this. Our panel of three social media savvy gals, with a history in broadcast, will explore the ‘effective’ and ‘destructive’ ways to use social media in your stories. They’ll also give you the low down on how to personally make best use of social media.

If you have any thoughts on the subject, you know I love learning – so please feel free to provide your input.

    Just watched Bridget’s webisode and she kind of reminds me of you. I could totally see you doing a show like that.

    Looking forward to our panel!

    Hi Erica,

    Thanks! I think she’s way more comfortable with herself on camera that I am – so that’s a major compliment (I am largely comfortable in characters)

    Yes, I’m looking forward to our panel too!
