'We Live In Public' Screening Extravaganza
In partnership with the Open Media Foundation, Futuristic Films brought a truly revolutionary digital+cultural event to Denver on March 1st at Denver Open Media.
Futuristic director Ondi Timoner (2x Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner) celebrated the DVD and VOD release of her 2009 Sundance winning film "WE LIVE IN PUBLIC" by coordinating screenings of the film across the nation at different venues. After the screening, those venues went live on the web for a multi-cast Q&A with Ondi and Josh Harris (the internet pioneer who is the subject of the film) that was broadcast to the entire world via weliveinpublicthemovie.com.
The film screened simultaneously in 6 cities (LA - NYC - CHICAGO - VANCOUVER - ATLANTA - DENVER). It was followed by an interactive Q&A with hosts Adrian Grenier (HBO’s Entourage) in NYC, Ondi Timoner and Josh Harris in Chicago and Eliza Dushku (FOX’s Dollhouse) in LA.
Every city lived in public for the remainder of the evening, including Red Carpet appearances, sleeping pods, fire dancers and other eclectic performances. Denver’s event, sponsored in part by PBR, hosted live painting (Kamla Presswalla and Audrey McNamara) and some of Denver’s finest DJs and VJs; DJ Ginger Perry and VJ duet DnD (Dizy Pixl + dBom).
