“New technologies have empowered and enabled creators outside of a studio or network system to make
their own movies and develop cutting edge entertainment. Affordable cameras and editing software allow
artists to create and express their skills for a multitude of new distribution platforms,” says Emmy and
Golden Globe nominee Matthew Modine. “We are presently [a] witness of how storytelling is being
redefined in the 21st Century. New Media Film Festival highlights and showcases what will come next.”
