Tapscott to speak at Berlin debate

Keynotes event looks at future of film

BERLIN — The challenges facing the film industry in the digital era will be the focus of the Berlinale’s Keynotes forum on Feb. 12, which runs from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the historic Kaisersaal on Potsdamer Platz.

With a lineup of speakers that features some of the leading minds in film and media, the second annual Keynotes run by the Berlinale and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg promises to be another lively affair after its premiere this year.

“This is the biggest change to movies since the invention of the full-length feature film,” said Don Tapscott, a leading authority on digital economy and bestselling author (“Wikinomics, How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything”). The University of Toronto professor, one of several international experts to attend Keynotes, will talk about the rapid advances of the media.

“I’m delighted we’ll be able to contribute with the Berlinale Keynotes to the debate on the remarkable developments in the digital media world again in 2008,” said Berlinale topper Dieter Kosslick. “With the Berlinale Keynotes, we hope the festival will open itself up even more to representatives of other media and the event will establish itself as a forum for innovative questions and exchange between different sectors.”
