We’re bringing Planet Fandor to you, one city at a time.
The film fanatics and tech heads that make up Team Fandor have had a really busy fall! Here are just a few highlights of what we’ve been up to in our travels and outside of the Fandor offices:
- Guy Maddin‘s newest film was introduced by Fandor co-founder and Chief Content Officer Jonathan Marlow at New York City’s Film Forum on October 12
- Marlow curated a program of Fandor shorts presented by Fandor Film Acquisitions Director Amanda Salazar at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival on October 18
- Tim Pozar, Fandor’s Director of DevOps. IT, Streaming Operations and Customer Support, spoke on a panel about troubleshooting issues with streaming at the annual Audio Engineering Society Conference in New York on October 30.
Pozar, our resident expert on net neutrality issues and other Internet policy, was also interviewed recently about open access engineering options for the Community Broadband Bits podcast.
And that’s not all! Coming up at the end of this month, Fandor will be present throughout Cascadia (that’s the Pacific Northwest, for the uninitiated) AND the airwaves (and Internet-waves) with plenty of films and other great presentations to share:
Tim Pozar will discuss his experiences on the AES panel (about the problems with streaming and how to deal with them) in an interview with This Week in Radio Tech, a weekly podcast for broadcast engineering professionals. Now’s your chance to get the lowdown if you weren’t able to make the conference or if you just want to know more.
Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum presents a screening of Bob Birdnow’s Remarkable Tale of Human Survival and the Transcendence of Self as part of their VOD IRL screening series! Fandor is co-presenting this event, and the film will also be available in our library starting that day! Get tickets and find out more info here. The filmmakers will be in attendance, along with Fandor’s co-founder Chief Content Officer Jonathan Marlow. Get ready for a great Q + A!
The annual Association of Moving Image Archivists conference (the largest gathering of motion picture and recorded sound archivists and interested professionals) in Portland, Oregon will host Fandor’s Jonathan Marlow to speak on film preservation and distribution. It’s going to be a film nerd’s festival of delights in the Rose City!
Back at the Northwest Film Forum, enjoy “Marlow’s Cabinet of Curiosities”, where the Fandor co-founder and Chief Content Officer presents a collection of rare works by legendary filmmakers!
So catch us if you can in a city near you, and stay tuned: we’ll have even more exciting news and events to share in the new year!
