"[Side By Side] is worth a year of film school and at least 1,000 hours of DVD bonus commentary." – A. O. Scott, The New York Times
"An absolute MUST-SEE for anyone who loves movies." – David Poland, Movie City News
"An engrossing and detailed crash course on the digital revolution." – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
"Fascinating... utterly absorbing." – Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist
"Utterly irresistible... Keanu Reeves canvasses opinions from a truly impressive array of talents." – Leslie Felperin, Variety
For December, BOSCPUG is excited to bring you a special event exploring the digital cinema revolution as we pose the question, "Can Film survive our Digital Future?"
The evening will begin with a private screening of the documentary SIDE BY SIDE, followed by a Q&A with CHRIS KENNEALLY (Director) & guests.
Then, join us for an industry reception featuring Drinks & Appetizers + Networking next door at SALVATORE'S to continue the conversation.
SIDE BY SIDE takes an in depth look at the past and the future of filmmaking. Since the invention of cinema, the standard format for recording moving images has been film. Over the past two decades, a new form of digital filmmaking has emerged, creating a groundbreaking evolution in the medium. Through interviews with notable directors, cinematographers, producers, technologists, editors and exhibitors, SIDE BY SIDE examines all aspects of filmmaking - what has been gained, what is lost, and what the future might bring.
Chris Kenneally lives in Brooklyn. He wrote, directed, and produced the doc Crazy Legs Conti: Zen and the Art of Competitive Eating (TFF 2003). He is currently in pre-production on a narrative feature about a teenage graffiti artist in Coney Island called Green Dolphin and is developing an episodic series called Chef.
