This sidebar represents the change that is happening in the entertainment industry via television, web, and mobile devices. Introduced new this year, the intent is to grow a fresh platform for the 2nd and 3rd screen in a manner similar to a film festival. By allowing for even the shortest length of stories to be told, this creates an innovative source for industry professionals as well.
Now, more than ever, independent producers, directors, writers, and actors can showcase all genres of work for television, web, cell phones and ipods to the masses. Waterfront is dedicated to promoting the arts on the big screen and small screen, including new age forms of media, in hopes to extend the success of these independent artists.
