What will Ted Hope say at AHC 2012?
On Thursday, January 19, Ted Hope returns to the Convergence to share his thoughts on where the Art House Convergence and the community-based, mission-driven cinema exhibition movement sits four years after his first visit. Also, from his vantage point as one of the most knowledgeable people in the independent film business, we can expect to hear thoughts about where the art, craft and industry of cinema is headed. Ted is one of independent film’s preeminent commentators, having lectured throughout the world, speaking and writing about the film industry he has helped shape. He maintains several blogs including “hopeforfilm.com,” and is founder and president of the New York production company This is that. His film producing work, numbering close to sixty films, includes many highlights and breakthroughs of the last two decades. As times, platforms and tastes change, Ted’s work continues to break new ground, reach new audiences and define the term “Independent.” Ted has also been a jury member at many film festivals including Karlovy Vary, Sundance and SXSW.
