I don't often get to speak at a public venue in my home turf, so I am alerting readers to an upcoming event. This Sunday I am doing the State of Cinema talk at the San Francisco Film Festival. I plan on speaking about the future that is "beyond moving pictures." That's a clumsy way to say I'll be making some wild half-baked speculations about where film, video, technology, photography, text and digital hoo-ha will all converge at some unspecified time in the future. If you'd like to see me make a fool of myself, the talk will be at 1pm at the Clay Theater on Fillmore. I think tickets are $20. Details here.
