Mike Figgis chairs the panel at The film Council's New Cinema Fund Digital Seminars

'Beyond The Curve - Digital Seminar' deals with creative and artistic choices borne from the new medium. It focuses on the conflict between established principles of storytelling and novel options intrinsic in the media, and the effect of the media on all disciplines of film. Mike Figgis chairs the panel which includes Lunar Girl director, Janis Sharp, Liz Rosenthal of Next Wave Films, and other film makers at the Raindance film festival.


The topics of discussion are artistic merits of shooting in a digital format, and the advantages and disadvantages of Hi-definition to the creation of tomorrows movies. The panel fielded questions from a packed audience of film makers and industry notaries.
